How Quantum Entanglement Works

  1. Jan 30, 2005 #1
    Hey, folks.

    A pretty light read on how quantum entanglement works, starting from first principles without using math but with lots of pictures. Quite good!

    Thanks for the link. I will read it.

    A "light read", yes, but as an explanation of entanglement I'm afraid the link is no use at all. The mere fact (if indeed it is a fact?) that members of a pair of "photons" emitted under parametric down-conversion have orthogonal polarisations does not conflict at all with local realism.

    Interesting link, thanks. :smile:

    The link to "quantum entanglement and deep space propulsion" is however totally wrong:

    :rofl: :rofl:
