Entangled, 2004, is an abstract sculpture created by Indiana-based artist Brose Partington (American b. 1979). The sculpture is located on the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) campus at the Herron School of Art and Design, 735 W. New York Street in Indianapolis, Indiana, in the United States. It was given to Herron by Ezra Freidlander and Linda H. Freidlander in 2005.
I have been working for some time on designing an experiment and have gotten stuck on one particular aspect. I would greatly appreciate any advice that can be offered. I'm using SPDC to produce two polarization-entangled photons. Through the course of the experiment I know that one of the...
Hello everyone!
I don't know where to look for information - maybe here it will work :)
Is there a generator of entangled photons with fixed polarization?
If not, is it theoretically possible to build or is it against the laws of physics.
I need this knowledge for further computer...
The many online articles about the future security issues posed by quantum supremacy — at least those pitched at the interested layperson (like myself) — tend for quite understandable reasons to focus on the outcomes that QS will have on today’s digital-based security systems. . . not as they...
Hello,
The Mach-Zehnder interferometer makes it possible to highlight the corpuscular and undulatory aspect of light, (in particular using single photons).
By using the "continuous" beam from a coherent source, one is able to visualize directly on two screens E1 and E2, an interference pattern...
The proton and electron are described by separate wavefunctions.
When they come together in the hydrogen atom are they quantum entangled and have a joint wavefunction.
Hello,
Happy New Year 2023 !
Interested in spontaneous parametric down-conversion (SPDC), and the possibility of creating entangled photon pairs, I studied several possible configurations with type 1 and type 2 nonlinear crystals.
When using these crystals, the dominant phenomenon is second...
The Delayed Choice Quantum Eraser (DCQE) experiment attempts to show that which-path information can be "erased," and interference recovered. I'll refrain from explaining the experiment, and assume you are familiar with the setup. I refer to the Wikipedia page about it, and the original Kim...

Suppose there are two entangled particles A and B, separated by a few miles or light years.
If the spin for particle A is observed, then from my understanding, A will experience quantum decoherence.
And now we can be sure that B will have the opposite spin since B is entangled with A.
Assuming...

Consider the following experiment:
A photon hits a beam splitter, then a non-linear crystal (nichtlinearer Kristall - sorry, prepared the image in German) on each path that does parametric down conversion, splitting the photon into a signal and an idler.
The idlers proceed to two detectors (D1...
Here is something I don't understand which I expect someone here can explain.
If one member of an entangled pair goes on a trip at relativistic speeds, there will be two different frames of observation, with two different elapsed times.
The time frames can get off-set by years, over a long...
In my messy apartment I might well find a right-hand mitten, and immediately know the left-hand state of its missing partner. A classical description works just fine for this (their opposite states were produced at the time of manufacture) and I don't need to consider my observation of one...
First, I was not sure whether this should go into the Relativity or the Quantum Physics rubric, but since the central question is about entanglement, I opted for the Quantum.
I do not have the necessary sophistication to follow string theory arguments, and even most explanations in...
In NMR, protons that are near each other exchange energy with each other by photon emission and absorption.
Proton A is spin down, and proton B is spin up. proton A emits a photon and becomes spin up, and proton B absorbs this photon and becomes spin down. have the two protons been entangled?
I am a non scientist and nonetheless a have the following question: once particles are (intrinsically) entangled do they always react in the opposite way/ anti-symetric to each other?

I'm trying to get my head around the principles of quantum entanglement (would love to get some schooling on the issue but I don't have that kind of money) and trying to discern the actual science from the horrible misconceptions is difficult. I know you can't transmit information faster than...
I'm an undergrad in physics, and have been asking myself the following question recently. Suppose you have a pure quantum state p (von neumann entropy=0), made of 2 sub-states p1 and p2 that are entangled. Because they are entangled, p \neq p1 x p2. Hence the entanglement entropy of p (=0) is...
If an atom were made to release a Photon, then a number of the components of the atoms nucleus were theoretically extremely quickly removed. would the previously emitted photon change wave length?
I would greatly appreciate answers or perspective on these questions, thank you in advance!
Since entangled photons are traveling at the speed of light relative to our spacetime, my understanding is that they experience no time or distance from the moment they are generated to the moment they...
Correlation between polarization measurements of entangled photons at angles less than 45 are greater than classically statistically possible. No set of hidden variables can be preordained to explain the 75% correlation of photon measurements at 30 degrees and complete anticorrelation of...
Hi Pf
I read that when two particles are maximally entangled , all the information is in the correlations between the particles. If we need 1 bit to describe one particles. Are two bits in the correlations?
three particles may be entangled and then we need to considere 3 bits. As entanglement...

In reading around, it seems that in the case of entangled particles, it is the measurement of one of the particles that causes the other one to be it's opposite spin and that there's some means of info transfer going on caused by the measurement. I'm not understanding why it would not be that...

The answer is no and even when decoherence occurs for Wigner's Friend in the lab, quantum coherence remains. Let's start with the paper that illustrates this.

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a nice day,

If you measure the location of an electron in helium, does it impact the expectation value for the location of the other? Also, can this experiment be conducted in practice? Thanks.

(This question is on the elementary side...) In the Schrödinger picture, the state is dependent on time. If you have a state composed of several particles, generally you can break them up, with each one depending on local time. But in an entangled system, say of two particles, you can no longer...

Suppose you make a measurement of some particle. If you know it is entangled, you may have conditional knowledge of measurements that might be made at a spacelike distance (if the other observer does/has done x, they will/did get result y). Note, I am using local in the sense of special...

Let's consider Bohm's paradox (explaining as follows). A zero spin particle converts into two half-spin particles which move in the opposite directions. The parent particle had no angular momentum, so total spin of two particles is 0 implying they are in the singlet state.

I'm reading Adam Becker's QM book "What is Real?" At one point he says:
