Room temperature Superconductivity induced by nanotube confinement What if we take a carbon nanotube, place it in a cryogenic environment, fill it with He atoms, then take it to standard temperature and pressure: are the He atoms confined sufficiently by the nanotube to maintain their electrons in Cooper pairs? [...]
Programming Paradigms A picture is worth a thousand words, that may be, but not the types of words that I'm thinking of. ...
Quantum Computing Notes Quantum computing exploits quantum behaviors, such as superposition and entanglement, to perform computations; it is thanks to these behaviors that NP-hard problems can be solved in a reasonable time (NP-hard problems are combinatorial in nature, their solution involves the determination of optimal combinations). It must be [...]
Quantum Physics Thoughts Electron orbitals are 3D standing waves The nodes of the 3D standing waves are surfaces: they represent position of 0 change (change of what?) The antinodes are also surfaces: they represent position of maximum change (change of what?) Each orbital represent an harmonic Nuclei are [...]
