Quantum: A Guide For The Perplexed

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Quantum-Guide-Perplexed-Jim-Al-Khal...
From Schrodinger's cat to Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, this book untangles the weirdness of the quantum world.Quantum mechanics underpins modern science and provides us with a blueprint for reality itself. And yet it has been said that if you're not shocked by it, you don't understand it. But is quantum physics really so unknowable? Is reality really so strange? And just how can cats be half-alive and half-dead at the same time?Our journey into the quantum begins with nature's own conjuring trick, in which we discover that atoms -- contrary to the rules of everyday experience -- can exist in two locations at once. To understand this we travel back to the dawn of the twentieth century and witness the birth of quantum theory, which over the next one hundred years was to overthrow so many of our deeply held notions about the nature of our universe. Scientists and philosophers have been left grappling with its implications every since.

The Quantum Universe: Everything that can happen does happen

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Quantum-Universe-Everything-that-ha...
The Quantum Universe brings together two authors on a brilliantly ambitious mission to show that everyone can understand the deepest questions of science. But just what is quantum physics? How does it help us understand the world? Where does it leave Newton and Einstein? And why, above all, can we be sure that the theory is good? The bizarre behaviour of the atoms and energy that make up the universe has led to some very woolly pronouncements on the nature of all interconnectedness. Here, Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw give us the real science, and reveal the profound theories that allow for concrete, yet astonishing, predictions about the world. This is our most up-to-date picture of reality.

Reality Is Not What It Seems: The Journey to Quantum Gravity

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Reality-Not-What-Seems-Journey-eboo...
From the best-selling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics comes a new book about the mind-bending nature of the universeWhat are time and space made of? Where does matter come from? And what exactly is reality? Scientist Carlo Rovelli has spent his life exploring these questions and pushing the boundaries of what we know. Here he explains how our image of the world has changed throughout centuries. From Aristotle to Albert Einstein, Michael Faraday to the Higgs boson, he takes us on a wondrous journey to show us that beyond our ever-changing idea of reality is a whole new world that has yet to be discovered.

Quantum Physics: Superstrings, Einstein & Bohr, Quantum Electrodynamics, Hidden Dimensions and Other Most Amazing Physics Theories - Ultimate Beginner's Guide - 3rd Edition

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Quantum-Physics-Superstrings-Electr...
★☆★Welcome to Your First Quantum Physics Beginner's Guide!★☆★3rd Edition!Including Special ★BONUS★ content, right after ConclusionEver wondered about how light moves? What does it mean to study the smallest particles known to man? How does science measure the smallest particles in the world, such as atoms, protons, neutrons and electrons? What is ether and how did it become a source of debate in the scientific community?Studying the smallest particles known to man can be exciting work. This study of the world on the molecular level, particularly matter and energy, is the realm of Quantum Physics. Scientists use mathematical equations to help them explain the behavior of matter and energy within the Universe. If you have a curiosity about the world of Quantum Physics, but thought the science textbooks would be too much to absorb, this book is for you. With an overview of what Quantum Physics is, historical background into the scientists who created many of the theories that make up Quantum Physics, and a look at a few of those theories. Quantum Physics is more than the study of matter and energy, but dives into the behavior of matter and energy on a molecular level. Scientists use the information they gather through experiments, observation and continually more precise measuring tools to explain how the building blocks of our world work together.This book dives into a discussion of wave particle duality and how this theory has continued to mystify scientists even today. Or learn how a particle can appear to go through the wall, versus around it. Using light as an example, this book explains how wave particle duality was discovered, who was able to explain the multiple conflicting observations and finally, what scientists have used this information to create. Learn about Einstein and his disagreements with the scientists of his time over various theories in Quantum Physics. Get a better understanding of how theories within Quantum Physics relate to one another. Receive a basic understanding of the Unified Force Theory and how science is still working to prove this unique all-encompassing theory. Written in common man versus science speak, this book gives everyone a chance to get their toes wet as they learn the basics of a complex area of scientific study.

Quantum: Einstein, Bohr and the Great Debate About the Nature of Reality

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Quantum-Einstein-Debate-Nature-Real...
'This is about gob-smacking science at the far end of reason … Take it nice and easy and savour the experience of your mind being blown without recourse to hallucinogens' Nicholas Lezard, Guardian For most people, quantum theory is a byword for mysterious, impenetrable science. And yet for many years it was equally baffling for scientists themselves.In this magisterial book, Manjit Kumar gives a dramatic and superbly-written history of this fundamental scientific revolution, and the divisive debate at its core. Quantum theory looks at the very building blocks of our world, the particles and processes without which it could not exist.Yet for 60 years most physicists believed that quantum theory denied the very existence of reality itself. In this tour de force of science history, Manjit Kumar shows how the golden age of physics ignited the greatest intellectual debate of the twentieth century.Quantum theory is weird. In 1905, Albert Einstein suggested that light was a particle, not a wave, defying a century of experiments. Werner Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and Erwin Schrodinger's famous dead-and-alive cat are similarly strange. As Niels Bohr said, if you weren't shocked by quantum theory, you didn't really understand it.While "Quantum" sets the science in the context of the great upheavals of the modern age, Kumar's centrepiece is the conflict between Einstein and Bohr over the nature of reality and the soul of science. 'Bohr brainwashed a whole generation of physicists into believing that the problem had been solved', lamented the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Murray Gell-Mann. But in "Quantum", Kumar brings Einstein back to the centre of the quantum debate. "Quantum" is the essential read for anyone fascinated by this complex and thrilling story and by the band of brilliant men at its heart.

Quantum Simulations with Photons and Polaritons: Merging Quantum Optics with Condensed Matter Physics (Quantum Science and Technology)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Quantum-Simulations-Photons-Polarit...
This book reviews progress towards quantum simulators based on photonic and hybrid light-matter systems, covering theoretical proposals and recent experimental work.  Quantum simulators are specially designed quantum computers. Their main aim is to simulate and understand complex and inaccessible quantum many-body phenomena found or predicted in condensed matter physics, materials science and exotic quantum field theories. Applications will include the engineering of smart materials, robust optical or electronic circuits, deciphering quantum chemistry and even the design of drugs.Technological developments in the fields of interfacing light and matter, especially in many-body quantum optics, have motivated recent proposals for quantum simulators based on strongly correlated photons and polaritons generated in hybrid light-matter systems. The latter have complementary strengths to cold atom and ion based simulators and they can probe for example out of equilibrium phenomena in a natural driven-dissipative setting. This book covers some of the most important works in this area reviewing the proposal for Mott transitions and Luttinger liquid physics with light,  to simulating interacting relativistic theories, topological insulators and gauge field physics. The stage of the field now is at a point where on top of the numerous theory proposals; experiments are also reported.Connecting to the theory proposals presented in the chapters, the main experimental quantum technology platforms developed from groups worldwide to realize photonic and polaritonic simulators in the laboratory are also discussed. These include coupled microwave resonator arrays in superconducting circuits, semiconductor based polariton systems,  and integrated quantum photonic chips.This is the first book dedicated to photonic approaches to quantum simulation, reviewing the fundamentals for the researcher new to the field, and providing a complete reference for the graduate student starting or already undergoing PhD studies in this area.
