New avenues into Quantum Mechanics

In recent times two articles that can do the seemingly impossible in Quantum Mechanics have been published and they generated some buzz on the interweb. This first article Observing the Average Trajectories of Single Photons in a Two-Slit Interferometer is … Continue reading

Cigar-shaped trap potential

At more or less at the same time that I did the Mathematica code to simulate a speckle pattern producing potential I also had to create a code that recreated a cigar-shaped trap potential. This was done with the goal … Continue reading
