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.

Also, compatibility issues within low-temperature requirements and the use of quantum entanglement during network communication are posing challenges to market growth.
Long before humanity devised the experiments to test the postulates of the 19th-century scientific theory, writers and poets had picked up on the idea of quantum entanglement, popularising the delightfully bizarre concept through romantic analogies.
The physical phenomenon of quantum entanglement takes place when two (or more) quantum objects are intercorrelated and therefore the state of a quantum object influences instantaneously the state(s) of the other(s) entangled quantum object(s), no matter the distance(s) between these objects [16].
For example in June 2017, scientists in China successfully conducted an experiment to test the properties of quantum entanglement at distance using a satellite.

There is talk of quantum entanglement, time crystals, dark energy, worm holes and travelling faster than the speed of light.
Quantum entanglement is a quantum mechanical property of a composite quantum system consisting of two or more subsystems (such as particles), describing a situation where a quantum subsystem is linked to another via a specific process leading to correlations between observable physical properties of the subsystems.
The key theoretical breakthroughs enabling quantum communication technologies were the discovery of the phenomenon of quantum entanglement in the 1930s and the realisation that entanglement represented not merely a curiosity of quantum theory but a critical resource which could be exploited to achieve heretofore impossible communication tasks in the 1980s.
