Application of Quantum Mechanics in Real Life.



Application of Quantum Mechanics
The first paragraph explains the concept of quantum mechanics. It is the science that deals with
how matter in the form of atoms and subatoms behave in their interaction with energy.
The second paragraph describes the importance of quantum physics in the development of
different technologies such as laser, X-ray, Fiber optics and atomic clocks.
The X-Ray
This section describes X-rays as a high energy electromagnetic radiation. The section also
explains how quantum theory principles are used in X-rays and how X-rays are formed.
The second paragraph in this section describes the areas in which X-ray technology has been
Optical Fiber Technology
The section defines fiber optics and explains how they work by using light technology to
transmit information.
The following paragraph shows the areas where fiber optic is used including in the military,
medicine and computer networks.
Ultra-Precise Clocks
This section explains the working of the atomic clocks and how they are used to generate GPS
Example of Personal Applications.
This section involves a description of areas in which quantum mechanics has been applied in
personal life. This is through the use ...
