Macroscopic quantum interference in an ultra-pure metal

Nanowerk.com - 17 июня, 2020 - 17:42
Although the subtle laws of quantum mechanics, that is, wave mechanics, ultimately govern all the processes of electron transportelectrons in solids, their wave-like nature of the electrons is not often apparent to the casual observer. A classical picture of electrons as solid particles goes surprisingly far in explaining electric currents in metals.
