noun, Physics. 1. any theory predating quantum mechanics that encompassed Planck’s radiation formula and a scheme for obtaining discrete energy states for atoms, as Bohr theory. 2. any theory that treats certain phenomena by the methods of quantum mechanics: a quantum theory of gravitation. noun 1. a theory concerning the behaviour of physical systems based […]
noun 1. a hypothetical technique to instantly transfer properties from one quantum system to another without contact, or to transfer a quantum state to an arbitrarily distant location. noun 1.

- Quantum tunneling
quantum tunneling A quantum mechanical effect in which particles have a finite probability of crossing an energy barrier, such as the energy needed to break a bond with another particle, even though the particle’s energy is less than the energy barrier. Quantum tunneling has no counterpart in classical mechanics, in which a particle can never […]
