Researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen have entangled two very different quantum objects — a mechanical oscillator/vibrating dielectric membrane, and a cloud of atoms with each atom acting as a tiny magnet. In addition to wholly disparate, the objects are much larger than classically entangled object pairs, giving the development potential applications in ultraprecise sensing and quantum communications. The objects acquired the ability to be entangled by physically connecting with photons. As photons moved between the two objects, a correlation formed, linking the motion of the objects. The correlated motion of the entangled objects present a precision better than the zero-point motion — the…READ MORE
