A one of the most interesting phenomena *(Hall voltage) *in physics was first observed by *Edwin Hall *in 1879. Let’s imagine that we have a horizontal conductive plate*(Hall element)*and with the help of any power source we supply current to the plate in a particular direction. So we will have electrons carrying current along a straight line on the plate.

Now,apply external magnetic field perpendicular to the plate.Since the magnetic field exerts a magnetic force*(Lorentz force) *on a charged particle,the moving electrons and the protons will move towards the edges of the plate in opposite directions.

The main reason why we don’t think of teleportation as a spontaneous natural event is that it never happens in daily life (by the laws of classical mechanics). Because the wavelength of the wave (or particle) much less than the width of the barrier . This also decreases the probability . That’s w...

If we look at the graph below, we see visually sense pointless results for irrational alpha values . But, as we saw in the previous graph,Hofstadter Butterflies lives in the white regions (range of rational values) of the graph below.

Potential difference is required for the existence of voltage in a particular direction. In our experiment, electrons and protons stacked on opposite sides to create a potential difference perpendicular to the current. This voltage is called the Hall voltage . Also, this phenomena is called the c...

In the quantum mechanics, every particle is also a wave . As we know from daily life, light waves (photon particles) scatter as they pass through raindrops and formed a rainbow. We assume that an electron does not undergo such scattering due to its movement in the crystal lattice medium.

Since the ratio will still give the magnetic field unit, the alpha value is the external magnetic field itself. The results will differ depending on whether the value of the external magnetic field is rational or irrational .

Here, the flux can be thought of as magnetic field lines pass thr...
