The standard theory of quantum mechanics leaves a bit to be desired. As Richard Feynman put it, "I think I can safely say that no one understands quantum mechanics." This is because observations of experiments have led us to a theory that contradicts common sense. The wave function contains all the information that is knowable about a particle, yet it can only be used to calculate probabilities of where a particle will likely turn up. It can't give us an actual account of where the particle went or where it will be at some later time.

Some have suggested that this theory is incomplete. Maybe something is going on beneath the radar of standard quantum theory and somehow producing the appearance of randomness and uncertainty without actually being random or uncertain. Theories of this sort are called hidden variable theories because they propose entities that aren't observable. One such theory is pilot wave theory, first proposed by de Broglie, but later developed by Bohm. The idea here is that a particle oscillates, creating a wave. It then interacts with the wave and this complex interaction determines its motion.

Experiments using silicone oil droplets on a vibrating bath provide a remarkable physical realization of pilot wave theories. They give us a physical picture of what the quantum world might look like if this is what's going on - and this theory is still deterministic. The particle is never in two places at once and there is no randomness.

i have a question about the screen distance. if the distance is far away from the double slits, the interference of the wave will decrease and the droplet wave will return to its origin state (like that it didn't pass through the double slits). does that occur in droplet experiment (your experiment) if yes, does it occur in quantum mechanics?

Pilot wave! Hands down. Completely lame to think about the Copenhagen interpretation. The idea that whole universes are created at every decision tree violates not just common sense, but the conservation of energy, and not by a small measure, but exponentially!

Thank you for the thought provoking video. It is worth emphasizing that Bell's theorem and the experiments by Aspect and others do NOT rule out non-local hidden variable theories, such as David Bohm's for example. You definitely can have a deterministic theory that fits the experimental data, but it is NECESSARY to include the spooky action-at-a-distance, otherwise it will not work.
In my opinion, I think Occam's razor actually favors ordinary quantum mechanics, but it is nice having different viewpoints to illuminate the mystery of the Quantum Realm.

Автор Rhett R ( назад)
Let's see: Quantum Mechanics only makes probability predictions. No mechanisms are inherent in the theory itself.

So we could posit:

A) A simple physical interpretation that fits the probabilistic prediction... even if it doesn't quite explain everything.


B) An "article of faith" that requires an almost complete rejection of common sense, determinism, and the very physical reality of matter itself, adds some mysterious mechanisms that might make copies of the entire universe, except for one small deviation -- probably billions (or way, way, way more) of times per second -- squared, (e.g. accelerating since the beginning of time itself) because every iteration adds more universes that must now split again! (Ignore that pesky theory about not being able to create mass from nothing -- QM is much more powerful than God -- He supposedly only created ONE universe... QM has created untold googolplexes of new universes in the time you've read this... and in some of them this comment doesn't even have any typos. ;-)

Or at very least, the "standard (Copenhagen) interpretation" requires the idea that the entire universe exists in some sort of "quasi" state until "observed. (Whatever the hell that means... Recorded by a computer? Photographed? Observed by a garden slug? Or a human? Or maybe God Himself needs to observe the universe before it can exist. (Just try to get a straight answer to that from a true QM believer.) [You do know that Schrodinger was making fun of this interpretation with his "cat" -- which has now become a new "article of faith" for QM -- he must be spinning (+/- 1/2, of course) in his grave.]

The clear answer is, of course, "B". How else do you think we can be arrogant sanctimonious assholes if the common man might be able to claim to understand basic physics. Not to mention, this gives us a good excuse to persecute those heretical unbelievers as backwards racist redneck morons who couldn't spell "physics" without an "f". (Plus, it makes a great (but *way* overused) plot device for Science Fiction -- everything is the same as the universe you know, but in *this* universe, Abraham Lincoln shot John Wilkes Booth, causing....)

(From which, of course, it follows that there is *some* universe in which arrogant physics prigs are actually human and can rationally discuss alternatives to their "theories" without resorting to name calling and insults.) (But not this one, of course... soon to be demonstrated below. ;-)

hmmm... this doesn't explain the lack of interference patterns when detectors are used on the photon and electron experiments, though. If pilot wave theory is accurate, then that needs to be addressed, I think. Don't get me wrong, I still love this video, it's an awesome visualization aid for wave interference, and particle interference with it's own wave.

I have to admit that I'm in awe of most of the discussion below. It gives me hope for the future that, as a post-drumpf-election American citizen, there are SO MANY inquisitive and knowledgeable people out there!

Anyway: As far as I understand Quantum Electro-Dynamics (QED), all leptons are just 'disturbances' in their own unique and universal quantum fields. For example - the phenomena we measure as 'electrons' are just 'bumps' in a single, continuous, universe-spanning 'quantum electron field'. This seems to explain entanglement - the apparent FTL communication of information is in fact nothing more than a contiguous field reacting INSTANTLY, AS A WHOLE, to a stimulus. Alain Aspect proved that non-locality is a true and valid charactristic of our universe, information CAN travel FTL between entangled particles, and QED suggests this result.

So DeBroglie-Bohm Pilot Wave Theory requires something to be 'waving' and interacting with the particles we observe... Couldn't that 'something' the relevant QED lepton field?

Автор Fourth-Dimensional Quasar ( назад)
Pilot-wave theory was discredited not because a different interpretation won, but because it couldn't properly explain what was observed. The Copenhagen theory is fine for some things, but even as far back as Schrodinger we knew there was more to it. Our current understanding of quantum mechanics is not perfect, but going backward to less complex models with one fifteenth the explanatory power isn't going to help us. Whether the answer is in a unified field theory, quantum gravity or what have you, there isn't really much purpose in dwelling on old mechanics from the classical era. We have quantum mechanics because that stuff just doesn't work.

Автор valon dedalus ( назад)
This did sound logical. Question though? Whereas electrons exist in a "3 dimensional" space, the behavior of the droplet and wave "analogy" is taking place in a "semi" 2 dimensional plane. I see that the results of the latter elegantly explain the former, but could it be that it is just that, "an elegant coincidence"?

Автор Sebastian Gil ( назад)
So it was precisely this very system that motivated the work of my undergraduate thesis. I meant to obtain a theoretical analytic model for the motion of the droplets. This is *notoriously* difficult because the conditions dictating the next bounce of the drop are consequent on the droplet's previous interaction with its environment -- the pilot wave propagating through the water bath. My research led me to examining systems with memory, which are best represented through inverse power laws and non-local theories. The interested reader would like to know that systems with memory are a key feature in the intersection of two very fascinating yet obscure (to physics) branches of mathematics: fractal geometry and the theory of fractional calculus.

Thank you so much for making this video. You've just motivated me to dig up my equations and double my efforts :')

P.S. Copenhagen absolutely sucks. It doesn't even make any attempts at realism. Pilot Wave is not without problems, namely the abandoning of locality, but it still is the only hidden variables theory that passes the Bell's Inequality test. But of course, there is also the mechanism of decoherence to be considered.

Being a regular mortal ignoramus, I vote Copenhagen because it feels right. My intuition (which, admittedly, has little to no place in modern physics) doesn't like waves running around on their own, it feels too much like they need some sort of aether.

"It comes down to what you're comfortable with."

Yeah, sure, just like how when giving a choice between poison for supper or food for supper I choose food because I'm more comfortable with it. It has nothing to do with the fact that it's idiocy to choose poison.

The Copenhagen interpretation is idealist, whereas the Bohmian one is realist. Which quote below looks more poisonous?

"We now know that the moon is demonstrably not there when nobody looks."

Quote from Bohmian (e.g. Pilot-Wave Theory) Physicist:
"One wants to be able to take a realistic view of the world, to talk about the world as if it
is really there, even when it is not being observed. I certainly believe in a world that was
here before me, and will be here after me, and I believe that you are part of it! And I believe

For the mind to be able to obtain a grasp of what may sort of be going on is brilliant. Information is supposed not to be able to travel faster than light so do you think the standing wave can send out and receive information to guide a photon?

I've always felt the "pilot wave" is an underlying force of our universe we don't understand yet that drives basically every thing about the universe that isn't related to particles. (gravity, dark matter, dark energy) Our current understanding of particles Is not wrong at all, it's actually a totally separate half to the universe that the particles just interact with.

Asking which one you like assumes that reality has one preferred way. I think the thing we call a particle exists in many places at once as a probability and is collapsed upon being observed or striking the screen.

This analogy is one of the best visuals I have ever seen which illustrates quantum particle/wave characteristic's behavior. Now, if we could just figure out how and what specific density that allows particles to emanate "waves" which interfere with themselves, and create "walkers" we could begin to predict behavior of particles the same way a Rubic Cube speed runner looks at a Rubics Cube.

Автор Ghazi Bousselmi ( назад)
Dude, thanks a lot for this video !! I am not a physicist, but like many, the Copenhagen interpretation always bothered me. I think the wave function is a powerful mathematical tool to calculate probabilities; but should only be taken as that, a probability calculation tool, which by definition would encompass all possible states & paths (etc...), but that should not be extended to the interpretation of the physical reality of the underlying phenomena (the electrons passing through both slits, or not having a definite position).
I was trying to explain the double slit experiment by the electromagnetic interaction of the moving particles with the particles of the slit walls, and/or their own electromagnetic waves they create while moving (that also travel through the slits, resulting in classical wave interference) and with that post-slit wave interference.

Wonderful analogy !

If you wanna make more experiments with loudspekers to get the vibration on a surface, you could use the KingKong (edit: the speaker is called KX-1, i've had something other in my head...) from Ompere. It's a flexural wave converter. Here's how it work's: what you need is a surface where you can let it stand on, with the vibration's that are created from the speaker, you use the shape and the material of the object you've put the speaker on as resonance body. Different shape's and different material's add a little difference between the clarity and precision of a frequency. It's fun to experiment with this speaker on different object's, if you add a with water filled bowl to the speaker, you can see a lot of pattern's in the water depending on the frequency you put in the speaker ;)

Why is it that people can't discuss anything without taking sides between religion and science. You will all be surprised to learn that religion and science are two sides of the same coin......science will talk of parallel dimension while religion will talk of your spirit and soul, science will talk about non-matter dimensions while religion will emphasize on the spiritual world, science will talk about multiverses and religion will talk of another life after death, religion will talk of earth's creation from nothing(bible) and science will talk of dark energy and dark matter and creation of matter from nothing. Science will always emphasize on existence of a greater form of energy or power i.e dark energy and religion will emphasize existence of God.What does this tell us? none of the two is wrong. The only difference is that religion claims different lines of thought and science proves those lines of thoughts.This will always be the cycle or trend until religion and science intercept or find a locus point. The question should be, What lies beyond the locus point? This is the missing piece of the puzzle Albert Einstein did not oversee in the Einstein's God Model.

How would the pilot wave theory explain the collapse of the wavefunction upon observing whether the particle goes through slit 1 or slit 2? Would this hypothetical physical wave (physical what, btw? aether?) disappear instantly for some reason? if so, it seems as though the method of observation interacts with the wave and cancels it out, however this does NOT explain the results of the quantum eraser delayed choice experiment where a later measurement of an entangled particle determines whether this pilot wave would or would not have existed. Unless there's some explanation around how a future event can cause a past physical object (the pilot wave) to be cancelled out, then it seems clear that the pilot wave theory is fundamentally at odds with our intuitive sense of the direction of causality and with relativity and most other areas of physics.
  In terms of other interpretations applied to this experiment my own view is that the results have something to do with knot theory in quantum mechanics - a concept first introduced by Finkelstein to explain fermion behaviour. rather than thinking of a world that is composed of particles we can think instead of a world that is composed of knots that exist as a topology in space-time. So, for example, instead of having 2 particles -an electron and positron, say - that form and then annihilate one another, what you have is a ring that exists in the geometry of space-time. Instead of four similar particles that form and then annihilate (with two swopping places necessarily requiring another to perform a 2pi spin) we have the same ring but twisted like a figure eight but with a twist in one of its sides. Seeing the experiment in a similar vein to this, looking at the entangled photons as one spatio-temporal entity, we can suppose that only certain shapes are allowed, which explains why what happens to one entangled photon - even if it is in 'our' future - necessitates some behaviour by the other even if it is at an earlier instant, because they are both, in fact, one entity.
  This doesn't explain superposition, but what if we see superposition as a grouping of these different spatio-temporal 'knots' that span a dimension that we cannot observe. And the state of superposition is itself in a state of 'superposition', in the case of the quantum eraser delayed choice experiment, through another dimension where there are three states - one where the particle is observed to go through slit 1, another where the particle is observed to go through slit 2, and yet another where the particle is unobserved and therefore exists in a state of 'proper' superposition. Only the observable universe maintains the law of conservation for energy, which is why when our environment makes a measurement or interacts with the particle in superposition, the wavefn collapses, and only one particle appears, although the other particles (or spatio-temporal 'knots' as I should say but its easier to use 'particle' terminology when speaking from our perspective) will still exist separate from our observable universe.
  Correct me if i'm wrong please.

I think people confuse light with photons. Light is a transverse and spherical wave of ether or energy that travels away from a heat or energy source, like a candle flame, such as Thomas Young used for his double-slit experiment.  A photon is purely a particle that creates light.  A photon creates light in two ways. 1.) a longitudinal spherical wave it creates as the ether repels around the traveling photon,  we see it as an interference pattern like in the double-slit experiment, and  2. a transverse spherical wave that travels away from the point of impact of the photon which is an an energy source. The same is true with other charged particle as electron, they create a wave in the ether as they travel.  The interference pattern disappears when you try to detect  the photon, because the detector refocuses the wave in the ether.

I think that once we become comfortable with science is when it slaps us in the face. Neither of these interpretations care what we are "comfortable" with. They do what they do, it is a nice way to visualize how it works but until we discover exactly what is happening rationalizing it without evidence is not as important than finding out what IS happening. We might never discover that.
