CHAPTER20

Quantum Imaging

In This Chapter

  • Everyday applications of tunneling, spin, and matter waves
  • Medical imaging from X-rays to MRI
  • The microscope reinvented, again and again
  • The production of molecular movies

Throughout this book, we’ve paid many a visit to the so-called “quantum realm,” where particles smaller than a speck of dust begin to demonstrate all the lovely features that we have studied so far. It should be no surprise, then, that one of the most successful applications of quantum physics has been to the imaging of micro- and nano-structures.

In this chapter, we will continue our survey of quantum applications and turn our focus ...
