  Schrödinger's cat

Image: Schrödinger is known for his thought experiment on Schrödinger's cat concept. This experiment helped explain the complex ideas of quantum physics because at the time there was debate about the nature of quantum reality. Schrödinger's cat concept illustrates the principle of quantum superposition and the notion of measurement. The experiment involves a cat in a box with a device that can kill the cat with a certain probability, based on the decay of an atom. According to quantum theory, before observing the box, the cat is in a state of superposition where it is both dead and alive.
