There have been many scientists and theorists that have tried to come up with a I.T.O.E., or Integral Theory Of Everything, in regards to quantum mechanics and how the universe works. It’s actually surprising how none of the theories contradict each other or cancel out one another’s credibility in the science community. The microcosm is believed to be the microscopic replica of the entire universe, or macrocosm. This has led scientists to look closer at things on the earth through a microscope to better understand how the universe works.
This, in return, has resulted in a big paradigm shift in science and now we use quantum mechanics to figure out and invent all sorts of things. Many things that have been invented could not have been without the use of quantum mechanics, such as computers or technology in general even. Here is a list of some of the many different things that have been created since the early 20th century due to the birth of quantum mechanics.
Lasers- The first laser to ever operate was invented on May 16, 1960 by Theodore Maiman (University of Chicago Press). Since then, they have been used for all sorts of things. Today, lasers are even used to find the outcomes of all kinds of science experiments involving quantum mechanics!
M.R.I.- (magnetic resonance imaging) scanner- Magnetic resonance was found in the 1930s and used by the military during and around World War 2 . In 1974 Raymond D. Damadian had found a way to detect cancer cells in rats and patented the first M.R.I. machine. It was “the world’s first patent ever issued in the field of M.R.I” (web.mit.edu).
Compact Disks (C.D.s)- In the late 1960s a man by the name of James T. Russel came out with the invention of the digital compact disd, or c.d., and later even received 26 different patents for c.d.-rom technology (web.mit.edu), all thanks to the advancement of quantum physics!
