Major grant to investigate limits of quantum theory
Date:3/14/2013

chrdinger's Cat paradox where the cat is in a superposition state of both half alive and half dead. The team will try to generate a Schrdinger Cat using free-flying nanoparticles at the mesoscopic scale.

"If quantum theory is unlimited we should be able to generate a quantum superposition state for very massive particles such as nanoparticles. However, if quantum theory is not valid we will be unable to generate this superposition. We simply want to test which of the two alternatives is correct and therefore if quantum theory has any limitations," said Dr Ulbricht.

"Ultimately we would like to try and extend this experiment to really macroscopic scales to things that can be seen with the naked eye," he added.

The team will be collaborating with theoreticians in Mumbai, in India, and Trieste, in Italy.

"Our project has the potential to represent a big step forward on the road to the discovery of possible limitations of quantum theory and an even more fundamental underlying new theory, which would be a breakthrough for the foundations of physics. With this Templeton Foundation grant and hopefully more funding in the future, the University of Southampton can be one of the first places in the world to observe mesoscopic or even macroscopic superposition," said Dr Ulbricht.
