    Physicists Develop New Method to Verify Photon Entanglement

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A team of researchers from the University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) has introduced a novel technique to detect entanglement even in large-scale quantum systems.

    Here is how the technique works: After a quantum system has been generated in the laboratory, the scientists choose specific quantum measurements that are then applied to the system. The results of these measurements lead to either confirming or denying the presence of entanglement. The scientists’ confidence in the existence of entanglement grows exponentially with the number of individual detection events, namely copies of the quantum state. “It is somehow similar to asking certain ‘yes/no’ questions to the quantum…
