Abstract Title: Investigation of Students’ Difficulties with Quantum Measurement
Abstract: Advanced undergraduate and graduate students usually have common difficulties in learning the issues about measurement in quantum mechanics. In this paper, we describe some difficulties advanced undergraduate and graduate students have with quantum measurement and analyze the possible origins of these difficulties. Results from this research can be applied to develop the research-based learning tutorials to improve students' understanding of quantum measurement.
