SPECIAL RELATIVITY FOR BEGINNERS

SPECIAL RELATIVITY FOR BEGINNERS

Albert Einstein, in his 1905 paper (On the electrodynamics of moving bodies) formulated a physical theory that described the relationship between space and time. This theory which was built on the earlier work of Hendrik Lorentz is the special theory of relativity. The incompatibility of Newtonian mechanics with Maxwell equations of electromagnetism and Michelson-Morley experiment which demonstrated the non-existence of aether led Einstein to develop […]

ARE WE IN A SIMULATION?

ARE WE IN A SIMULATION?

Back in the early 1970s, Stephen Hawking wrote an astonishing equation which included quantum mechanics, relativity and information. Hawking’s rather simple equation bought us closer to understanding the relationship between quantum physics and black holes. When an object gets closer to a black hole, the tidal forces crush the object. The information (arrangement of particles in some sense) of these objects shatters away completely. But the […]

BOSE-EINSTEIN STATISTICS AND QUANTUM INFORMATION PROCESSING

BOSE-EINSTEIN STATISTICS AND QUANTUM INFORMATION PROCESSING

Quantum Mechanics has been an all-time favorite topic for all science nerd, however, it’s truly a tedious job to understand the quantum phenomena and even more tedious when it comes to experimenting these effects (To know the three eras of quantum mechanics, check out my post ‘Journey through the quantum mechanics’). One such experiment is making an economically viable and efficient Quantum Computer (to understand […]

HOW QUANTUM COMPUTERS WORK?

HOW QUANTUM COMPUTERS WORK?

In the classical computation model, the computer has access to memory which can be found in one of a finite set of possible states, each of which is physically distinct. The state of this memory is generally represented as a string of symbols 0 and 1. In the classical computation model, the fundamental unit of memory is called bit and the size of the memory […]

GRAPHENE – A WONDER MATERIAL!

GRAPHENE – A WONDER MATERIAL!

Development in science and technology has truly revolutionized our standard of living. Computers, smartphones, and smartwatches have become a part of our lives and we can’t afford to stay without them in this fast-moving world. But the batteries, which give the potential for our devices to work, drain quickly and its recharging is truly time-consuming, also the batteries are nonbiodegradable and a waste of natural resources.  […]

HOW TRANSISTORS WORK? (BEGINNERS EDITION)

HOW TRANSISTORS WORK? (BEGINNERS EDITION)

Transistors are indeed one of the revolutionary inventions that man has ever made. The function of the transistor is to switch and amplify electrical currents. The number of transistors in dense integrated circuit doubles about every two years. This is Moore’s law. In today’s post, I will introduce you to the semiconductor world and will explain the working of a transistor which has revolutionized our […]

JOURNEY THROUGH QUANTUM MECHANICS

JOURNEY THROUGH QUANTUM MECHANICS

It’s true that there are only a few people who truly understand Quantum phenomena and are able to give satisfactory explanations to others. Quantum Mechanics has always been one of the mindboggling domains in physics. This micro-world never misses an opportunity to surprise us and is always unpredictable. Thanks to the most powerful tool of mathematics because of which we can explore the deepest mysteries of science. In 1808, […]

ABSTRACT NATURE OF TIME

ABSTRACT NATURE OF TIME

Time has been a long run debating topic for many people in the scientific community. The notion of time has changed over the centuries in the field of physics. At around the Newtonian period, time was considered to be flowing at a constant rate and everything in the universe was considered to experience the same time. But during the phase of the early twentieth century, […]

UNDERSTANDING THE FOURTH DIMENSION

UNDERSTANDING THE FOURTH DIMENSION

Hey friends! I assure you that this post would be one of the amazing posts by me. It was very fun to review my old notes and to go through some recent developments on this topic and I assure you to answer all your queries through this post. Before initiating the topic, I would request you to throw away all the methodologies and mindsets for […]

EXPERIMENTAL EVIDENCE OF DARK MATTER AND DARK ENERGY

EXPERIMENTAL EVIDENCE OF DARK MATTER AND DARK ENERGY

Hello and welcome back! I hope you, must have read my last post on ‘gravitational lensing‘ and would be curious to know what contributed to the extra mass? In today’s post, I will explore the 95.1% of the invisible energy density of our universe and eventually answer the question. All the matter which you see on earth, in the cosmos constitutes only 4.9% of the energy density of our […]
