“The image we’ve managed to capture is an elegant demonstration of a fundamental property of nature, seen for the very first time.”
— Paul-Antoine Moreau, Ph.D., Prof. of Physics and Astronomy, Univ. of Glasgow, Scotland
July 15, 2019 Glasgow, Scotland – On May 15, 1935, physicist Albert Einstein and his two postdoctoral research associates Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton University, New Jersey, published a paper in the Physical Review entitled “Can Quantum Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete?” See More Information link below.
Sixty-nine years later that question is still argued and the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy stated on May 10, 2004: “The (EPR) paper features a striking case where two quantum systems interact in such a way as to link both their spatial coordinates in a certain direction and also their linear momenta (in the same direction), even when the systems are widely separated in space. As a result of this “entanglement,” determining either position or momentum for one system would fix (respectively) the position or the momentum of the other.”
Breakthrough: Physicists Have Now Photographed Photons in Quantum Entanglement
Physicists at the University of Glasgow in Scotland have for the first time shot a pair of photons from a laser, separated them on very different paths and then captured on a special camera what they looked like.
