Latest Action at a distance Stories
"Spooky action at a distance" is how Albert Einstein rather famously described the theory of quantum entanglement. Until now, however, experiments attempting to examine this peculiar quantum mechanical phenomenon have been limited to relatively small distances on Earth.
What Einstein once referred to as “spooky action at a distance” could be our way into a 'Star Trek' future.
Physicists have proposed an experiment that could force us to make a choice between extremes to describe the behavior of the Universe.
Physicists have developed the first conclusive test to better understand high-energy particles correlations.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Joint Quantum Institute (NIST/University of Maryland) have developed a new method for creating pairs of entangled photons, particles of light whose properties are interlinked in a very unusual way dictated by the rules of quantum physics. The researchers used the photons to test fundamental concepts in quantum theory.
