B Disentanglemt of a system of particles

  1. Apr 23, 2016 #1
    Is it possible for an entangled system of particles to be disentangled at a distance, without making them interact directly with each other?

    Yes, by measuring one or both.

    ok, fine, but they will still be entangled once you stop making a measurment right?

    No. The interaction necessary to make a measurement breaks the entanglement.
