Страх Эйнштейна: ученые увидели квантовую запутанность

Einstein called this effect “spooky action at a distance”

For the first time in the history of science, physicists have managed to obtain the first image of quantum entanglement. In an article published in the journal Scientific Advances, by scientists from the Scottish University of Glasgow shared this important for the science of the.

Black-and-white photograph shows two entangled photons, which passed through the crystal beta-barium borate, causing four of the phase transition. The camera captured the moment when both particles are shifted equally, although have been separated, thereby clearly confirming the existence of quantum entanglement and violating bell inequalities. Roughly speaking, the compiled from multiple images of the photons experiencing a series of phase transitions.

The first in the history of science the quantum entanglement

Quantum entanglement occurs at the moment when the two particles become inextricably linked, and what happens to one immediately affects the other, despite the distance between them.

In quantum mechanics particles are both waves no fixed position in space. Only when there is the observer, the system has to take one particular quantum state. Entangled particles affect the state of each other, even if they are more than a thousand kilometers.

This phenomenon in quantum mechanics is so strange that even the great theoretical physicist of the XX century, albert Einstein called it “spooky action at a distance”.

The results of the experiment push the development of technologies for producing images of quantum phenomena, which in turn, will bring scientists to the understanding of these processes and their further application.

We will remind that earlier scientists have solved the mystery of the Millennium about the chicken and the egg. A recent discovery in Antarctica will save humanity from extinction.
