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.
