Quantum Uncertainty

In quantum mechanics, the uncertainty principle is any of a variety of mathematical inequalities asserting a fundamental limit to the precision with which certain pairs of physical properties of a particle known as complementary variables, such as position x and momentum p, can be known simultaneously. For instance, in 1927, Werner Heisenberg stated that the more precisely the position of some particle is determined, the less precisely its momentum can be known, and vice versa.

    … of the scene, effectively removes much of our perception of this noise allowing our brain to amplify the image free of noise. Not only does light arrive randomly at the silicon sensor, but the sensor itself adds noise as it turns photons into electrons and amplifies the signal. This conversion process is also confounded by quantum uncertainty…
