Weekly Papers on Quantum Foundations (1)

[Perspective] The fragility of distant Cooper pairs  Science: Current Issue on 2017-1-06 12:00am GMT The first superconductor was discovered in 1911, when elemental mercury was cooled below the helium liquefaction temperature. Suddenly, it ceased to show any resistance to the flow of electricity. Soon after, it became clear that some metals become superconducting upon cooling, and some do not. Half... Read more →

Quantum nonlocality observable on a non-statistical level: idea, experimental evidence, fundamental consequences

Sergey A. Emelyanov (A. F. Ioffe Institute) Today quantum nonlocality is discussed only in the context of EPR situation where we face a macroscopic system which is fundamentally indivisible insofar as it consists of entangled distant particles. But quantum formalism implies a one more type of indivisibility. It is the indivisibility of a quantum state per se regardless of its... Read more →
