What are the applications of quantum biology

Quantum biology

The application of Planck's and EINSTEIN's ideas about the quantum exchange of effects between radiator and field and about the discontinuous structure of electromagnetic waves (photons) on biological problems was a thought in 1922 that seemed all too bold, even fantastic, to many. But now, after only 30 years, it has become a large branch of biophysics. The number of quantum biological publications runs into the thousands, more and more researchers and institutes are dealing with them, and yet the impression remains that despite all the results that have been achieved, one is still at the beginning. The author of this book was thrown out of his research area in 1933 when National Socialism seized power. After the Second World War, when order and peaceful international research returned, he found with joy and gratitude that despite all the turmoil, thanks to the outstanding achievements of physicists, chemists, biologists and radiologists, the new branch of knowledge had developed, while preserving the original ideas significantly expanded through refinements and new features, but especially through a vast amount of experience that has been gained in almost all cultural countries and that is growing daily. This development is at the same time an impressive example of the load-bearing capacity and the limitation of physical models and their mathematical-formal treatment in the biological research area. As great as the achievement of such an approach is and makes the method indispensable, one must always remain aware of its limits. It is necessary to come across findings where the conclusions drawn from the model are no longer correct, because the model is always too coarse and does not receive any final validity even after it has been refined.
