Scientists are the first in the world to get an image of quantum entanglement

The University of Glasgow conducted an experiment to implement Bell's entanglement, a form of quantum entanglement described by physicist John Stuart Bell in the 1960s. For this, a stream of entangled photons was launched through a target made of liquid crystal materials, which changed the phase of the particles as they passed. Using a supersensitive camera, scientists were able to capture this process, for the first time in the world showing the effect of quantum neglect not in the form of a model, but in reality.

In the modern interpretation, quantum entanglement occurs when two moving particles meet each other, begin to interact and form an unusual connection. It is not represented in the form of any radiation or material bonds between entangled particles - however, it persists even if they are separated at a great distance. And if you make some manipulations with one particle, the changes will immediately manifest in the second.

The phenomenon of quantum entanglement has long ceased to be a theory, and has already been repeatedly proven by the example of atoms, molecules - and more recently, more and more large objects. This is one of the "building blocks" of quantum mechanics, the basis of this science and an important aspect for the implementation of practical solutions. Therefore, the value of the achievements of Scottish scientists can hardly be overestimated.

"The image that we were able to capture is an elegant demonstration of a fundamental property of nature, captured for the first time in the form of an image."

This is how Dr. Paul-Antoine Moreau, lead author of the study, described the result. And seeing quantum entanglement means getting even closer to managing it.
