Quantum potential

In quantum mechanics, the quantum potential would connect all elementary particles and thereby enable contact between these particles without loss of time.

 


Explanation

It is the physical interface between particle and wave field and its role is to channel energy from field to particle and back.

The quantum potential is a term within the Schrödinger equation which acts to guide the movement of quantum particles

where

    ℏ Reduced Planck constant
    m Inertial mass
    ∇2 Kinetic energy
    R Amplitude of the wave function

 


Additional information

The quantum potential was proposed in 1952 by the American physicist David Bohm.
