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.

But now, strange-but-true phenomena such as quantum nonlocality (where particles instantly teleport across vast distances) may give us a way to make the dream of traveling back and forth through time a reality.
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.
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.
Once one tries to use the information, the correlations disappear, just as they disappear if one tries to use quantum nonlocality to transmit classical signals.
