From the Publisher

Physics: 1963-1970 focuses on the history, developments, and trends in physics, including the applications of lasers, semiconductors, and electrodynamics.
The book first offers information on events, laws of nature, and invariance principles and the shell model. Topics include magic numbers, atomic analogue, individual orbits in the nucleus, and the use of invariance principles and approximate invariances. The text also ponders on the production of coherent radiation by atoms and molecules, including basic maser principles, maser clocks and amplifiers, and application of lasers.
The publication takes a look at semiconductor lasers and development of quantum electrodynamics. Discussions focus on methods of obtaining states with negative temperature in semiconductors; conditions for the production of negative temperature in semiconductors; and semiconductor lasers. The text also examines the optical methods for studying Hertzian resonances, energy production in stars, and developments in particle physics.
The manuscript is a dependable reference for readers interested in the history, developments, and trends in physics.

Is Quantum Theory About Reality or What We Know?

Physicists know how to use quantum theory—your phone and computer give plenty of evidence of that. But knowing how to use it is a far cry from fully understanding the world the theory describes—or even what the various mathematical devices scientists use in the theory are supposed to mean. One such mathematical object, whose status physicists have long debated, is known as the quantum state. One of the most striking features of quantum theory is that its predictions are, under virtually all circumstances, probabilistic. If you set up an experiment in a laboratory, and then you use quantum theo

A Theory of Consciousness Can Help Build a Theory of Everything: Neuroscience is weighing in on physics’ biggest questions.

For an empirical science, physics can be remarkably dismissive of some of our most basic observations. We see objects existing in definite locations, but the wave nature of matter washes that away. We perceive time to flow, but how could it, really? We feel ourselves to be free agents, and that’s just quaint. Physicists like nothing better than to expose our view of the universe as parochial. Which is great. But when asked why our impressions are so off, they mumble some excuse and slip out the side door of the party. Physicists, in other words, face the same hard problem of consciousness as n

To Understand Your Past, Look to Your Future: An alternative to the Newtonian worldview promises to help explain quantum weirdness.

You’re thinking about time all wrong, according to our best physical theories. In Einstein’s general theory of relativity, there’s no conceptual distinction between the past and the future, let alone an objective line of “now.” There’s also no sense in which time “flows”; instead, all of space and time is just there in some four-dimensional structure. What’s more, all the fundamental laws of physics work essentially the same both forward and backward. None of these facts are easy to accept, because they’re in direct conflict with our subjective experience of time. But don’t feel too bad: They’
