In two places at once Quantum superpositions of objects consisting of millions of atoms may be achievable with cavity quantum optomechanical techniques. Published Thu Jul 07, 2011 A fundamental feature of quantum physics is superposition of states, such as the double slit experiment in which a particle passes through both slits at the same time …
