Quantum Twins

Lecture no. 11 from the course: Quantum Mechanics

Quantum Twins

Taught by Professor Benjamin Schumacher | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Macroscopic objects obey the snowflake principle. No two are exactly alike. Quantum particles do not obey this principle. For instance, every electron is perfectly identical to every other. You learn that quantum particles come in two basic types: bosons, which can occupy the same quantum state; and fermions, which cannot.
