Quantum mechanics is a fundamental branch of physics which generalizes classical mechanics to provide accurate descriptions for many previously unexplained phenomena such as black body radiation, photoelectric effect and Compton effect. The term quantum mechanics was first coined by Max Born in 1924.Within the field of engineering, quantum mechanics plays an important role. The study of quantum mechanics has lead to many new inventions that include the laser, the diode, the transistor, the electron microscope, and magnetic resonance imaging. Flash memory chips found in USB drives also use quantum ideas to erase their memory cells
