Thought experiment of the reality of matter wave

Takeshi Yamaguchi (Tokyo Institute of Technology) A thought experiment regarding the light-wave diffraction by a matter-wave lattice is proposed. Matter-wave diffraction by an optical-lattice is already a well-established experimental technology, therefore, its symmetrical phenomenon, i.e., light-wave diffraction by a matter-wave lattice, does not seem to be unlikely. If the diffracted light could be observed, it would suggest the presence of... Read more →

An Information-Based Solution to the Measurement Problem in Quantum Mechanics

Maya Lincoln and Avi Wassery (University of Haifa) One of the most intriguing challenges that physics has been confronting during the recent decades is the measurement problem in quantum mechanics (QM). Despite the extensive research on this enigmatic phenomenon, science is still searching an explanation for the irreversible transformation of a measured system from a wave-like (quantum) state to a deterministic state. To... Read more →

Time Really Passes, Science Can't Deny That

Nicolas Gisin Today's science provides quite a lean picture of time as a mere geometric evolution parameter. I argue that time is much richer. In particular, I argue that besides the geometric time, there is creative time, when objective chance events happen. The existence of the latter follows straight from the existence of free-will. Following the french philosopher Lequyer, I... Read more →
