Understanding The Quantum Realm 3: Einstein Was Wrong

In this piece, we will review an especially important concept of Quantum mechanics.

2 articles ago, we began a journey to understand what Quantum Physics is all about. The aim was to make it simple enough for you to understand. In this piece, we will review an especially important concept of Quantum mechanics. One that was not just responsible for the war between great pioneers of modern physics but now sits at the core of future tech.

In the last article, we spoke about how Einstein and Neil Bohr disagreed on the notions of continuous probability. Bohr believed a particle could be here “and” there while Einstein believed a particle could only be here “or” there.

Bohr supported his claims using the Copenhagen Approach to Quantum Physics while Einstein supported his claims using Schrodinger’s cat analysis. While the former believed that the outcome of an experiment can be altered by observation, the latter argued that measurement does not affect the outcome. In other words, the outcome is determined before it is observed.

“Nature is absolute. God does not gamble.” The famous quote by Einstein finds its origins here. Einstein believed that the gamble is in our calculation because we cannot do (calculate) any better.

In a 1935 paper published by Einstein, Rosen, and Podolsky, Einstein explains his perspective on quantum theory stating that he finds it not ‘complete’ though still ‘correct.’ Einstein reports that “the quantum theory, with which science predicts with some success inter-atomic happenings, does not meet the requirement for satisfactory physical theory.”

Einstein’s Approach Illustrated.

Imagine taking  a red and a blue marble and placing  them in a box. Shake the box vigorously and blindly put each marble into two separate boxes. Then give two individuals in two separate locations each marble. The first individual will find a red marble while the second individual will find a blue marble. The second individual will always find a blue marble no matter how many times he opens it or even if he opens it first.

That is common sense, right?

The problem with this illustration is that it is far too simplistic and even though it agrees with our macroscopic experiences and the laws of classical physics, when applied to subatomic particles, it does not translate. This is because particles are a lot more complex.

Before we explain why, it is important to note that Einstein did not say Bohr’s theory was complete hogwash, he instead believed it could be better.  Let’s explore the reasons why below.

First, is because of a specific  quality of particles called ‘Spin.’ Classically, a particle can either spin upwards or downwards or can appear as a mixture of both. It is only when you measure the particle that it can only be ‘caught’ spinning in one direction. So, measurement has taken the particle out of its ‘mixture.’ Which means that any time particles are measured, scientists are, by definition, only getting partial data of the larger picture. It is a well-known quality of a single particle in quantum mechanics. In other words, observation only provides us with one of the many possible answers.

Second, particles are always interacting. For example, we know from basic science class that electrons and protons and neutrons are always interacting with one another through bonds called forces. You cannot isolate a subatomic particle; it always maintains its bonds. So, a single particle’s experience is already being altered by the other particles it is connected to. Einstein’s approach reaches a crisis  when more than one interacting object comes into play. Einstein eventually describes this as “spooky action in a distance”, offering no definite explanation for when the complexities of spinning particles that are in constant interaction are taken into consideration.

This interaction between particles is what gave rise to the idea of Quantum entanglement.

According to ScienceDaily, Quantum entanglement is a quantum mechanical phenomenon in which the quantum states of two or more objects have to be described with reference to each other, even though the individual objects may be spatially separated.

The effect of this is that two interacting particles will always spin in opposite directions, regardless of how many times the measurement is taken or the distance between the particles.

“I would not call that one but rather the characteristic trait of quantum mechanics, the one that enforces its entire departure from classical lines of thought,” Erwin Schrodinger, author of Schrodinger’s cat and one of the fathers of quantum mechanics.

In a bid to defend his notions, Einstein produced the concept of Hidden Variables, variables that are yet unmeasurable but that determined the orientations of the spins

Niels Bohr believed there were no hidden variables and that we need to just accept fact or nature as it is. Physics, Bohr believed,  really is first a science of discovery.

30 years later, John Stewart Bell came up with the Bell’s theorem to explain Einstein’s Hidden Variables theory and settle the dispute. John Bell explains this in a paper he published in 1954 titled “On the Einstein Rosen Podolsky Paradox”. Through the experiment, we discover that particles are not separated by distance. No matter how far the particle goes apart, they do not become independent objects moving in opposite directions in space but two parts of a single object that is still interacting, thus proving that Einstein might have thought of entanglement the wrong way.

Why is it  important to talk about quantum entanglement?

Very soon, quantum entanglement may  be necessary to live our everyday lives.

According to Arvin Ash, “Entanglement is the key ingredient of the new founded technologies we keep hearing more about. Super-powerful quantum computers and uncrackable data encoding using quantum cryptography. It is about to become very real for everyone,” Ash states.

Computers that can calculate in seconds what would take supercomputers centuries to calculate, the ability to beat cybercrime for good, and tech that not only unlocks the secrets of the universe but allows us to participate in it. All of these and more are the possibilities  that lie over the horizon.

There is no derivative conclusion about quantum entanglement that is simple in any way. Nonetheless, many scientists ‘assume’ the correctness of this state of entanglement to explain concepts such as the connection between quantum mechanics and black holes. This is the next big step in this series. Buckle up!

The Michelin brothers created the guide, which included information like maps, car mechanics listings, hotels and petrol stations across France to spur demand.

The guide began to award stars to fine dining restaurants in 1926.

At first, they offered just one star, the concept was expanded in 1931 to include one, two and three stars. One star establishments represent a “very good restaurant in its category”. Two honour “excellent cooking, worth a detour” and three reward “exceptional cuisine, worth a
