Superposition

In quantum mechanics, superposition describes how two (or more) quantum states can be added together to produce another valid quantum state.

 


Explanation

It means that every quantum state can be represented as a sum of two or more other distinct states.

 


Example 1

An electron in the state |1⟩ + i |2⟩ is in a quantum superposition of the states |1⟩ and |2⟩.
