About The Quantum Institute

The Quantum Institute is a non-profit independent research institute dedicated to advancing understanding of the implications of quantum theory and its relationship with other well-established physical theories, in particular the theory of relativity.

The image above is the first-ever image of the internal structure of a hydrogen atom, by way of a new technique developed by Aneta Stodolna et al as described in this paper.

We are currently working on extending and elaborating a fundamental breakthrough identifying matter-related spacetime expansion as a possible explanation for the phenomena associated with so-called “dark matter.” These results were initially presented in a publication entitled “Gravitational theoretical development supporting MOND,” authored by T. F. Hodgkinson et al: 0.1103/PhysRevD.88.024036

The preprint version is available here: https://arxiv.org/abs/1307.3937
