Graphics created for Through Two Doors at Once: The Elegant Experiment That Captures the Enigma of Our Quantum Reality, a popular science book by Anil Ananthaswamy.
Through Two Doors is a survey of the quantum world—its mechanics, the scientists who study it, and competing interpretations that have evolved—as revealed by the Double-Slit experiment and its many modern-day variations (such as those with the Mach-Zehnder interferometer and beamsplitters). 38 unique illustrations complement the book’s text—including optical diagrams, schematics of experiment setups, and visualisations of recorded observations.
“[The] illustrations were well done throughout—minimalist not to distract, but with helpful guides to each iteration of the various experiments.” — David Kaiser, MIT, author of How the Hippies Saved Physics
