Researchers from Federal University Detail New Studies and Findings in the Area of Physics Research (Ultrasmall polarization rotation measurements via weak value amplification)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Investigators publish new report on Physics Research. According to news reporting from Joao Pessoa, Brazil, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "We propose a framework to analyze weak measurements based on an angular version of the von Neumann measurement scheme, where the coupling between the system and the meter causes rotation of the measuring variable."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Federal University, "We also discuss an experimental application of this theory in which measurements of weak optical activity and reflection-induced polarization rotation could be amplified in nearly two orders of magnitude."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "It can shed a new light on a great variety of physical chemistry, molecular biology and nanotechnology studies."
