Quantum systems can often be found to exhibit wave-like properties. As such, matter waves are known to interfere just as water waves, leading to regions of destructive interference - an absence of matter - while in regions of constructive interference, matter can become "localized". However, this behavior is not only true for matter properties of quanta, but also for their other intrinsic properties such a spin: certain spin projections can be shown to vanish while others remain measurable: this is the basis of so-called spin filters. In a rece…
