Testing discrete quantum mechanics using neutron interferometry and the superposition principle—Agedanken experiment



Using a neutron interferometer and the phase difference calculated from spatial discrete quantum mechanics, a test for discrete quantum theory may implemented by measuring the X spin polarization and its variation with position.
