Scientists Just Revealed First Photo of Quantum Entanglement

Researchers have captured the world’s first actual photo of quantum entanglement.  It describes as a phenomenon so strange Einstein famously described it as “spooky action at a distance”. The research was published in Science Advances.

The First-Ever Photo of Quantum Entanglement was taken by physicists at the University of Glasgow in Scotland.

This is the first time when human sees the particle interaction that underpins the strange science of quantum mechanics and forms the basis of quantum computing.

Quantum entanglement happens when two particles become inextricably linked, and whatever happens to one immediately affects the other, regardless of how far apart they are.

The particular photo displays entanglement between two photons – two particles of light. They’re interacting and for a brief moment sharing physical states.

Paul-Antoine Moreau, first author on the paper where the image was unveiled, said “an elegant demonstration of a fundamental property of nature”.

For capturing the unbelievable photo, Moreau and a team of physicists developed a system that blasted out streams of entangled photons at what they described as ‘non-conventional objects’.

The experiment actually involved capturing four images of the photons under four different phase transitions. Here you may see the full image below!

“Here, we report an experiment demonstrating the violation of a Bell inequality within observed images,” the team write in Science Advances. “This result both opens the way to new quantum imaging schemes … and suggests promise for quantum information schemes based on spatial variables.”
