Molecule Interferometry in a Simulated Interactive Research Experiment
Simulated Interactive Research Experiment
This site hosts 2 Simulated Interactive Research Experiments: a) Molecule diffraction at a nanomechanical grating, b) Molecule interferometry in a KDTL/LUMI interferometer. Both are currently unique systems, built and operated by the Quantum Nanophysics Group at the University of Vienna to demonstrate and exploit the wave-particle duality of complex things. To make these experiments available to the widest possible audience, these experiments were reproduced in a photo-realistic 3D virtual version, which can be manipulated in the same ways that you would manipulate the real-world experiment. All data and measurements that one can do simulate very closely real-world data, based on physically realistic models.
