Quantum Physics: What Everyone Needs to Know

A new general-audience book on quantum physics authored by Professor Michael Raymer – Quantum Physics, What Everyone Needs to Know – was published in June 2017. The book developed as a text for the Science Literacy Program (SLP) course he has taught the past few years to introduce nonscience majors to quantum physics, and explain modern developments in quantum technology. Raymer said, “Thinking about how to explain such abstract concepts as “quantum non-locality,” coupled with practical methods such as quantum cryptography, has been great fun. A near-future revolution in quantum technology may be right around the corner, and it’s worthwhile for the interested reader to learn about it.”
