New fundamental limitation restricts position accuracy of quantum objects

from PhysOrg

The uncertainty principle is probably the most well-known example of a fundamental limitation of measurement precision in quantum mechanics. In a new study, researchers have extended this theorem by showing that the conservation of the total momentum of a quantum object and measuring apparatus places a fundamental limit on how accurately the object's position can be measured.
