Quantum or Classical ? How to distinguish quantum and classical behavior?

Macrorealism “A macroscopic object, which has available to it two or more macroscopically distinct states, is at any given time in a definite one of those states.” Non-invasive measurability “It is possible in principle to determine which of these states the system is in without any effect on the state itself or on the subsequent system dynamics.” A. J. Leggett and A. Garg, PRL 54, 857 (1985) Leggett-Garg (1985) Sir Anthony James Leggett Uni. of Illinois at UC Prof. Anupam Garg Northwestern University, Chicago

Wave nature of particles !! C. Jönsson, Tübingen, Germany, 1961

Not a wave of particles Single particles interfere with themselves !! Intensity so low that only one electron at a time 4000 clicks C. Jönsson, Tübingen, Germany, 1961 Single Particle at a time

Two-slit wave packet collapsing Eventually builds up pattern Particle interferes with itself !! Single particle interference

A classical particle would follow some single path Can we say a quantum particle does, too? Can we measure it going through one slit or another? Which path ?

Einstein proposed a few ways to measure which slit the particle went through without blocking it Each time, Bohr showed how that measurement would wash out the wave function Movable wall; measure recoil Source Crystal with inelastic collision Source No: Movement of slit washes out pattern No: Change in wavelength washes out pattern Niels BohrAlbert Einstein Which path ?

Short answer: no, we can’t tell Anything that blocks one slit washes out the interference pattern Which path ?

Bohr’s Complementarity principle (1933) Niels Bohr  Wave and particle natures are complementary !!  Depending on the experimental setup one obtains either wave nature or particle nature – not both at a time
