An amazing feature of Quantum physics is that it can be observed in the real world and in the lab. It is no longer only possible to see the phenomenon in a theoretical physics paper. The reality of the phenomena can be seen, and so are the practical applications. Here, you will find multiple ways to understand some of the potential applications of the quantum theory in the real world.

Its clear today quantum physics affects the complete global economy. Physicists, whose expertise is primarily in the quantum field, created many key elements in modern society. A surprise to many is we can see quantum at work is with our own brains! We can use what we observe to better understand our world.

Quantum Real Life Applications Examples

For example, quantum mechanics is the key behind essential innovations such as the transistor. The transistor alone is a huge cornerstone of the information revolution that has had a massive impact.

Another example would be the architecture of the semiconductor electronics which is based mostly on the quantum band theory. Without any of the experience into how semiconductors work, it would be next to impossible to create modern mobile phones.

In addition to the transistor, physicists have also created other key elements in today's society such as lasers, computers, as well as the internet. Almost the whole world financial system is associated with these innovations. It is not possible to properly estimate the value of these contributions. But research that was done as far back as 2001 showed 30 percent of the US gross domestic goods were directly related to quantum physics. Experts estimate today these innovations now comprise tens of trillions of dollars annually in the world.

Use Quantum Physics To Understand The Human Brain

At birth, quantum information can't hold things like the basic building blocks of matter. However, quantum information can form in the brain, by transmitting bits of reality from the outside world think in holograms a quantum phenomenon to the brain. The brain then reconstructs whatever is in the outside world into an image more closely resembling what's contained within, or, in the case of information, our beliefs in the world (like our "mind's eye" which acts as the human eye. This is in principle a way to store information.

The quantum world is a strange place. In it, particles interact so strangely and in such odd ways that they don't behave like any known type of particle.

Quantum mechanics posits that nature is made of tiny particles that are constantly jiggling around all over. In all this action, they cannot actually sense each other. But, there are microscopic quantum objects, called qubits; which, when in certain states, can be called "entanglement!" They are so entangled, at least in principle, that they make sense of each other like the way your sense your own brain.

There are a bunch of different possible forms of quantum entanglement, but a general rule is that a qubit should be able to maintain it's entanglement between two or more qubits. But, how are these things connected in our brains?

Scientists have long thought that we are born with tiny quantum information, and, from this, can form an understanding of what the world is. These are the principles that form our beliefs.

Quantum Cognition

Quantum cognition seems to be an interesting area that uses quantum theory's mathematical formalism for modeling of the cognitive functions of the human brain. This includes logical thinking, perception, memory, decision making, judgment, and language,

Human psychology is one such way in which quantum physics can be useful. A study was done that describes the use of quantum physics for the study of cognitive abilities.

The scientistic proposed an algorithm that could be applied to the real world, to be applicable in clinical settings. As a starting point, a clinical study of brain and cognitive abilities is proposed.

The study used a large sample of children who participated in a cognitive test in the school, to investigate cognitive abilities in children. All the cognitive skills were measured in the children in the class.

There was a marked correlation between the test scores of the school children in the first half and their scores of tests in the second quarter. In other words, the children who scored high in the first half scored higher than the first quarter children in the second half. These patterns indicate that the children performed better at the beginning of the school year before any cognitive abilities were developed, so are able to take advantage of the additional opportunities given by the new school year.

This finding is a significant advantage for the school children in that they can use this knowledge and develop it in the classroom. This is possible because, in the absence of the teacher, the children can learn a large amount of the correct knowledge and, thus be able to use it to understand and solve other problems. Thus, the kids could use the same knowledge to advance their knowledge of the material they were going to be studied in the new school year. However, in the future children will be able to take advantage of the new opportunities given by the school year by using the information gained in previous years to take into account the changes in their environment.

The Holographic Principle

The basic law of nature says that everything has a "temporal" dimension or order and an "external" dimension or "internal," just like our brains and brainsets both of which act a bit like memory.

This means that everything like our memory is a combination of both time and something called a "location." As soon as you feel that you've stored something long-term, your brain makes a decision on how to use that information.

For instance, when you recall a date, your brain uses your stored knowledge and your location to build up a list of memories.

It's like a "Holographic Principle" that creates a holographic image of your memory.

And remember, the memory cannot be physically seen, but its internal structure can be understood.

World Without Quantum Mechanics

Indeed, it is harder to conceive of a significant new technology that does not rely on quantum mechanics. Not to mention our understanding of our own brain would be greatly lacking. Many disciplines do not necessarily use quantum mechanics specifically, to be honest.

In areas of mechanical, structural, and civil engineering Newtonian mechanics mostly satisfies engineers very well.

This being said if you drive a little deeper you will see the effect of quantum mechanics at work.  This is especially true when engineers attempt to solve cutting-edge issues and create new technologies.

Just remember that quantum mechanics is a theory of the tiny. To see it you must look for how things operate at an atomic level and figure out how quantum mechanics was used. Often it's not in full view but its there if you dig deep enough.
