Quantum Wave





Cmink32
I have been stuck on this question for about for years now, and here it is.

How long does it take a quantum wave to collapse?

I will come back to this and explain what a quantum wave is tomorrow since I don't currently have the time to do so. But if anyone can give me any insight to this I would be in your debt for the rest of my life. I will also explain later why this is relevant to what I am trying to figure out at a later date. Just wanted to get this question out there in hopes that someone might have a light bulb turn on in there head and come up with an answer.

That's a deep question.
The old view was that collapse is instant. Recently this has been challenged (particularly by quantum de-coherence theory, which states the time of collapse is proportional to the strength of coupling).
