Tel Aviv, Israel (SPX) Oct 12, 2012
Weizmann Institute Scientists observe quantum effects in cold chemistry At very low temperatures, close to absolute zero, chemical reactions may proceed at a much higher rate than classical chemistry says they should - because in this extreme chill, quantum effects enter the picture. A Weizmann Institute team has now confirmed this experimentally; their results would not only provide insight into processes in the intriguing quantum world in which particles act
