Scientists capture on camera the 'first ever' image of quantum entanglement
Physicists from the University of Glasgow have described how they recorded the phenomenon, where where two particles interact and share their physical states.
This connection, despite being impossible under the rules which govern the wider universe, underpins the field of quantum mechanics.
Physicists have for the first time captured an image of quantum entanglement, which a baffled Albert Einstein once called 'spooky action at a distance'. They have captured visual evidence of a strong form of the elusive phenomenon called Bell entanglement (pictured)
'The image we've managed to capture is an elegant demonstration of a fundamental property of nature, seen for the very first time in the form of an image,' said Paul-Antoine Moreau, of the university's school of physics and astronomy.
This seemed incompatible with elements of his special theory of relativity.
Bell entanglement is today being harnessed in practical applications like quantum computing and cryptography (artist's impression). An area where developments in this field are being put to use is in the field of quantum internet (stock)
A quantum computer would be able to do calculations that would take current supercomputers billions of years to carry out.
Quantum entanglement is highly sensitive to environmental interference that can easily disrupt a signal.
WHAT IS QUANTUM ENTANGLEMENT? In quantum physics, entangled particles remain connected so that actions performed by one affects the behaviour of the other, even if they are separated by huge distances.
