Quantum Pulp

OK, I have to admit, I thought this article in Seed Magazine was pretty freaking cool. Equating crime fiction and quantum physics? So there. More specifically, as Joshua Roebke puts it:

“Creative fiction is a powerful device for elucidating complex quantum

phenomena, both for informing the public and among physicists

themselves. Whodunits are natural fits for the portrayal, for example,

of the duplicity of light: In the infamous double-slit experiments,

photons seemingly change properties to avoid detection of their true

nature by playing both sides of the wave-particle duality.”
