A new study finds the quantum nature of protons could be behind one of the body’s most important processes.
Instead of protons “hopping” over barriers from point A to B, new research by professor Paul Champion and his team reveals for the first time that protons actually tunnel through these barriers. This discovery upends a centuries-old belief about how protons behave.
In a paper published in Nature Chemistry, Northeastern University physics professor Paul Champion, uses ultrafast laser technology to determine how physics and chemistry combine to make biology happen.
All around and inside us, an elaborate dance of molecular vibrations is constantly taking place.
