The Gregarious Particles

Lecture no. 12 from the course: Quantum Mechanics

The Gregarious Particles

Taught by Professor Benjamin Schumacher | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

You discover that the tendency of bosons to congregate in the same quantum state can lead to amazing applications. In a laser, huge numbers of photons are created, moving in exactly the same direction with the same energy. In superconductivity, quantum effects allow electrons to flow forever without resistance.
