INRIM, Politecnico di Torino

Enrico Rebufello is a PhD student in Metrology at the Italian National Metrology Institute (INRiM) and the Politecnico of Turin. He received his Master’s Degree in Physics of Complex Systems from the University of Turin in 2016, with a thesis on protective measurements. His research focuses in quantum optics, experiments on foundations of quantum mechanics and measurements in quantum mechanics.


IntroductionIn quantum mechanics, the expectation value of a physical observable is specified by the eigenvalues and the corresponding probabilities, and it is a statistical property of an ensemble of quantum systems. In... [ view full abstract ]
