Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everyone,

I didn't know in which thread i should post this so if this isn't the right subforum feel free to move it.

I have been very active last year reading up and getting into science. Since i don't have the ability to study it at the university due to the many projects i'm involved in i tried to get a basic but comprehensive understanding into the matter.

I'm making this thread here as I would like to get in contact with a passionate physics person, preferable a phd in the field of quantum physics.

Welcome to PF!
There are many passionate physics people here, some with Phd's.

As you likely know, there is a Quantum Physics subforum on this site.
Of course, always be sure to familiarize yourself with forum rules.
Good luck with your learning and endeavors!

Why d you think you need a pHD to get started?
If you post what your purpose is you'll get the best replies...

Thanls for the replies. I would love to talk to a phd personal but i will post a list of questions i had here.

1) is there such a thing as a absolute reference frame from a scientific point of view. If yes what is it and if not how much does the reference frame influence the experimental date?
2) In quantum mechanics, a quantum is the minimum unit of an interaction. Is this just a simple way to name it or is it really like that, meaning it cannot interact?
3) In QM elemental particles follow conservation laws and pop out and in existence depending on certain rules. Is this the case for only elemental particles or is it also applicable for the splitting of atoms in a nuclear reactor for example, where the atom pops out of existence and the spitted parts pops in to existence?
4) The photo electric effect shows how you have to look at quanta as wave-packets. Does this phenomena show that every quantum is a minimum unit and can only express itself in unity or is this a limited interpretation? If it's a minimum unit, is the frequency inherently defining this unit and is this theoretically also the case for all matter and energy when we would take the Broglie equations into account?
5) Is time dilation and length contraction defined by the velocity, or is it a result in the shift in frequency of the reference frame where time and space are properties relative to the reference frame and not the other way around?
6) I saw a Google talk where entanglement is been said to be the same as doing an experiment, in other words interaction is entanglement, is this a wrong idea or is there a truth in it? ( here is the link )
7) What is the reason for the squared of the probability amplitude resulting in the probability, is this just a mathematical trick or is there more into it?
9) In the time symmetric theory of Feynman, why does the idea of waves propagating in the past explain many phenomena (related to absorber and emitter) and is the theory commonly accepted?
10) How is time and distance represented in a pure mathematical sense, are they merely vectors with direction or is there more to it?
11) When the quantum fluctuations that don't allow for a unification with relativity are the main issue, for which reference frame is this the case?
12) When phenomena faster then light are being debated, is this from a theoretical point of view or is faster then light practical possible relative to a reference frame where information cannot travel ftl?

Thanks upfront for your time, i have more in debt questions but i didn't wanna make the list to big. Feel free to pm me I'd love to get more involved in it :)
