Theorists smooth the way to solving one of quantum mechanics oldest problems: Modeling quantum friction (J. Phys. Chem. Letters)

By: Tien Nguyen, Department of Chemistry Theoretical chemists at Princeton University have pioneered a strategy for modeling quantum friction, or how a particle’s environment drags on it, a vexing problem in quantum mechanics since the birth of the field. The study was published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters. “It was truly a most … Continue reading Theorists smooth the way to solving one of quantum mechanics oldest problems: Modeling quantum friction (J.
