The New Quantum Universe describes quantum mechanics and how it underpins everything we see about us–from atoms to stars, from nuclei to lasers. Quantum paradoxes and the eventful life of Schroedinger’s Cat are explained, along with the Many Universe explanation of quantum measurement. The book looks ahead to the nanotechnology revolution, describing quantum cryptography, quantum computing and quantum teleportation. Including an account of quantum mechanics and science fiction, this accessible book is a fascinating introduction for the general reader.

Quantum mechanics gives an understanding of not only atoms and nuclei, but also all the elements and even the stars. It makes possible the silicon chip and the myriad of laser applications, it explains the structure of Jupiter and provides an understanding of the mechanism of energy generation in our Sun and other stars. Quantum mechanics has given us great insights into the nature of the universe, promising an unlimited supply of energy from nuclear power and unlocking the awesome capability for self-destruction through nuclear weapons.
Following the success of The Quantum Universe, first published in 1987, a host of exciting new discoveries has been made in the field of quantum mechanics 

The New Quantum Universe provides an accessible introduction to the essential ideas of quantum physics, and demonstrates how it affects our everyday life.
