Quantum coherence - the fragile state during which particles are in superposition - lasts for only a fraction of a second before the whole system decoheres, which is a phenomenon that marks the transition from the realm of quantum to classical mechanics.
The objective we propose will be addressed by research focused on overcoming the following challenges: (i) Understand the effect of quantum coherence as a thermodynamic potential in molecular devices.
He's been working on modeling how quantum coherence plays a role In this process.
Once the team engineered the viruses, they were able to use laser spectroscopy and dynamical modeling to watch the light-harvesting process in action, and to demonstrate that the new viruses were indeed making use of quantum coherence to enhance the transport of excitons.

When the sample was held at this cryogenic temperature, the nuclear spins of about 37 percent of the ions - a typical benchmark to measure quantum coherence - remained in their superposition state for three hours.

In the new work, published May 21 in Physical Review Letters, Scully proposes that photon squandering can be curbed through a process called quantum coherence, in which atoms are in two energetic states simultaneously.
