quantum entanglement

n.
The physical condition of two more particles or physical systems being in quantum states each of which may only be described by reference to the others, especially when the particles or systems are separated in space.

An effect known as quantum nonlocality - two quantum systems (computers) linked together - is seen as the integral property that helps gauge security during data transfer between two computers.
They demonstrated that the effect, also known as quantum nonlocality, can still be verified even when many of the photons are lost by absorption or scattering as they travel from source to destination through an optical fiber channel.
Some of our activities are written up by David Kaiser (2011) in How the Hippies Saved Physics about our explanation of quantum nonlocality, quantum entanglement and Bell's Theorem.
Quantum nonlocality was first implicitly introduced in the seminal EPR article (Einstein et al.
Finally, Aspect and his collaborators experimentally confirmed the existence of quantum nonlocality.
He studies environmental philosophy, the mysteries of quantum nonlocality and home renovation.
We underline that this new interpretation of quantum potential appears permissible also in virtue of the fact that both a-temporal physical space and quantum potential allow us to explain quantum nonlocality.
With regard to quantum nonlocality, he states that experimental results prove that "an immaterial entity" passes between correlated (i.
Experimental test of quantum nonlocality in three-photon Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger entanglement.
Parker covers special relativity, general relativity, observational tests of the theories, black holes, cosmology, unified-field theories, and even quantum nonlocality, all from the historical perspective of the time line of Einstein's life.
Quantum entanglement has played a very important role in quantum information theory; it provides strong tests of quantum nonlocality as well as a useful resource for various kinds of quantum information processing.
Coming after a declaration like this, Tim Maudlin's conclusion, in 'SpaceTime in the Quantum World', that quantum nonlocality may imply the falsity or incompleteness of special relativity, seems positively modest.
