Latest Quantum eraser experiment Stories
Researchers at the University of Waterloo in Canada have directly entangled three photons in the most technologically useful state for the first time, thanks in part to superfast, super-efficient single-photon detectors developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Imagine you order a delivery of several glass vases in different colors. Each vase is sent as a separate parcel.
