Caption: Quantum waves. Computer model showing the movement of many waves (wave paths, intersecting blue and purple lines). The paths represent the motion of particles which are behaving like waves (wave-particle duality). Quantum theory states that the waves associated with the moving particles can collide to produce one random quantum wave, made up of waves moving in all directions. The particles travel from the top of the image downwards, stopping when they reach the pink line in the lower frame. The waves were modelled by Professor Eric Heller, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.
