Quantum entanglement is the mechanism by which quantum correlations between two sub-systems survive even after being physically separated from an interaction region. The correlations could in principle survive without neither time nor space constraint.

Coincidence detectors in Bell tests: How close is close enough?

When is a coincidence a coincidence? We know that to identify entangled photons, the electronics is set to look for simultaneous clicks at opposite detectors. The size of the window is to some degree ...

Constructing a maximally entangled qutrit state from $n$ Bell states

I've read that maximally entangled qubit states are a good "unit" of bipartite entanglement since it is possible to create any other entangled state from them using local operations and classical ...

Can two entanglement particles satisfy at same time two different wave functions?

The wave function determines the probabilities of an outcome, and the wave function is parameterized "shaped" depending on the measurement set. i.e. two different measurement set would lead to two ...

Has quantum entanglement been demonstrated to be able to take place over infinite distances?

In my poor understanding of quantum physics, quantum entanglement means that certain properties of one of two 'entangled' quantum particles can lead to change over infinitely large distances when the ...

Quantum Entanglement: how to generate 2 entangled particles?

I get quantum entanglement but I don't quite get how one would go about generating two complementary particles that are entangled (a photon and its entangled sibling, an electron and its entangled ...

Expansion of multi-particle state vector as a sum of n-entangled states

Physically, quantum entanglement is ranged from full long-range entanglement (Bose-Einstein condensate), described by a basis of states that look like this: $$ |\Psi\rangle = |\phi_{i_{0} i_{1} ... ...

Can observations of entangled particles affect their unobserved counterparts?

There are two experiments that are often used to explain Quantum Mechanics: the two-slit experiment and the EPR paradox. I am curious what would happen if you combined them. Imagine an experiment ...

How do electrons interact if one of them had just exited the two slits of the double-slit experiment?

Consider the following experiment: a double-slit set-up for firing electrons one at a time. Let's now add a second electron (orange), which is fired parallel to the first one, but in the opposite ...

Can PEPS explain the holographic principle in quantum gravity?

Condensed matter physicists have shown using quantum information that in many condensed matter systems, entanglement entropy only scales as the area of the boundary, and not the volume. This is the ...

Entangled particles

So we have two particles (A and B) that are entangled. From what I understand, entanglement isn't destroyed, it is only obscured by subsequent interactions with the environment. Particle A goes ...

Justification of ignoring large set of entanglements

If we can think about the universe as a wave function then many particles should be entangled with many other particles in the universe. The obvious question arises why we don't see those ...
