1.5 Schrödinger’s Cat and Superposition of States
Would a stream of neutrinos (instead of a stream of photons) also collapse the superposition to dead or alive?
This is incomplete: there is a quantum trigger that breaks the poison recipient based on the decay (or not) of a radioactive particle. This is essential.
Didn’t Schrodinger use this concept to illustrate the ludicrous nature of the concept of superposition? Is there a difference between the superposition of possible outcomes and probability of each of the possible outcomes?
Shouldn’t there be a quantum trigger to open the poison box ?
