Researchers create unprecedented quantum entanglement with 14 photons at the same time.

According to an institutional press release, researchers from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics set a new record after attaining the greatest quantum entanglement on record, 14 photons. Quantum entanglement, which Albert Einstein famously described as "spooky action at a distance," is a phenomenon in which particles become intertwined in such a way that they cease to exist individually, and changing the specific property of one results in an instant change of its partner, even if it is far away. Despite the fact that science cannot explain it, investigations have successfully demonstrated the existence of quantum entanglement, which has now formed the foundation of emerging technologies such as quantum computing, in which entangled particles are utilized to store and process i...
