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.

In strongly interacting systems, Topological phases may exhibit intricate quantum entanglement between their constituents, Leading to fascinating physical properties, Such as the emergence of anyons.
To test the entangled photons, the team came up with an approach - called quantum teleportation - which helped them study quantum entanglement even in high-loss systems.
In the experiment, scientists achieved distribution of entangled photon pairs over 1,200 kilometers, demonstrating that quantum entanglement - a phenomenon so confounding that Albert Einstein described it as "spooky action at a distance" in 1948 - still exists at such a long distance.
Quantum entanglement is a physical phenomenon that occurs when pairs or groups of particles are generated or interact in ways such that the quantum state of each particle cannot be described independently of the others, even when the particles are separated by a large distance-instead, a quantum state must be described for the system as a whole.
