Erwin Schrödinger

This "Paper Genius" celebrates the work of Erwin Schrödinger. Schrödinger was a Nobel Prize-winning physicist who was famous for his seminal equation in quantum field theory, called the Schrödinger equation. This equation provided a way to calculate the wave function of a system and how it changes with time. His "Schrödinger's Cat" thought experiment became iconic in the physics community. A cat, a flask of poison, and a radioactive source are placed in a box. If radioactivity is detected (e.g. Geiger counter), the flask is shattered, releasing the poison, which kills the cat. When someone looks into the box the cat is either alive or dead. However, before someone looks into the box, the cat is both alive and dead, simultaneously according to quantum superposition theory.
