An international research team will test Einstein’s twin paradox using quantum particles in a superposition state — an experiment that could lead to more accurate sensors and clocks.
The twin paradox postulates that time can pass at different speeds for people who are at different distances from a large mass or who are traveling at different velocities. “For example, relative to a reference clock far from any massive object, a clock closer to a mass or moving at high speed will tick slower,” professor Magdalena Zych (University of Queensland) said. “This creates a ‘twin paradox,’ where one of a pair of twins departs on a fast-speed journey while the other stays behind.”
