Abstract:Quantum electrodynamics was described by Feynman as the ‘jewel of physics’ [1985 QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter (Alix G. Mautner Memorial Lectures) (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press)] because of its ability to precisely describe the interaction of light and matter. It embodies the key concepts of quantum physics and yet also describes classical optics. It is normally considered to be too advanced for use in schools. Here we show that through the use of novel learning tools called phasor w… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
