How to catch and save Schrödinger's cat


Recommended Posts

"Yale researchers have figured out how to catch and save Schrödinger's famous cat, the symbol of quantum superposition and unpredictability, by anticipating its jumps and acting in real time to save it from proverbial doom. In the process, they overturn years of cornerstone dogma in quantum physics.

"The discovery enables researchers to set up an early warning system for imminent jumps of artificial atoms containing quantum information. A study announcing the discovery appears in the June 3 online edition of the journal Nature."

Not sure how you can prove you saved a theoretical cat... hopefully this doesn't lead to lots of dead cat experiments.

You don't even need the cat, it all boils down to that sensor getting tripped or not.

I agree... What does torturing the cat add to the experiment?
