Scientists determined a new quantum effect

However, neutron spin does not carry any mass and can only be described quantum mechanically, it exhibits an inertial property. Only when changing the frame of reference, e.g., when jumping off the train, we are decelerated. This field manipulates the turn, be that as it may, the spin orientations before and after the magnetic field are the equivalent. But when considering quantum particles, things become more complicated: Particles like neutrons or electrons feature a special kind of angular momentum—the spin. Prof. Yuji Hasegawa, head of the neutron interferometry group, explained, “ Like an artist who has spin and crosses a pivoting carousel, the neutron is presented to a rotating magnetic field. ” Armin Danner said, “Spin is the intrinsic orbital angular momentum of an elementary particle.
