A strong future for a weak quantum effect

Herman Batelaan, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The Aharonov-Bohm effect will be discussed. What is it, what does it mean, what work has been and should still be done, and can we use it for anything? These questions and the relation between the “Feynman paradox” and the Aharonov-Bohm effect will be addressed.
