Large scale entanglement experiment

In summary, there have been previous entanglement experiments done with Josephson junctions on a larger scale than the current drumhead experiment. The unique aspect of this particular experiment is that it involves mechanical degrees of freedom. Some recent papers and a 2011 experiment on this topic have been shared. The conversation now shifts to discussing potential practical applications of this phenomenon.

TL;DR Summary
Given below is the research paper and a related video to understand the phenomenon. This experiment is a proof of large scale quantum entanglement can be possible now.
This is the paper and here is the video. As far as I know, this is an entanglement related experiment done so far in such a large scale. I want to know whether entanglement related experiment has been done so far on a larger scale and what can be the possible use of such phenomenons.

Entanglement experiments with Josephson junctions have been done for some time now; those are larger, IIRC, than the drumheads in this experiment.

The interesting part of this experiment is that the degrees of freedom being entangled are mechanical.

Related to Large scale entanglement experiment

1. What is a large scale entanglement experiment?

A large scale entanglement experiment is a scientific experiment that aims to create and study entangled particles on a larger scale, typically involving a large number of particles or systems. Entanglement is a phenomenon in quantum physics where two or more particles become connected in such a way that the state of one particle affects the state of the other, regardless of the distance between them.

2. Why is studying large scale entanglement important?

Studying large scale entanglement is important because it can provide insights into the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics and potentially lead to the development of new technologies, such as quantum computers and secure communication systems. It also has implications for our understanding of the nature of reality and the interconnectedness of the universe.

3. How is a large scale entanglement experiment conducted?

A large scale entanglement experiment typically involves creating entangled particles or systems using specialized equipment, such as lasers and optical devices. The particles are then manipulated and measured to observe their entangled states and behavior. Advanced mathematical and statistical analysis is often used to interpret the results.

4. What are some challenges faced in large scale entanglement experiments?

One major challenge in large scale entanglement experiments is maintaining the delicate entangled state of the particles, as any interference or disturbance can cause the entanglement to break. Another challenge is scaling up the experiment to involve a larger number of particles, which requires sophisticated equipment and precise control over experimental conditions.

5. What are the potential applications of large scale entanglement?

The potential applications of large scale entanglement include quantum computing, quantum cryptography, and quantum teleportation. Entanglement can also be used to improve the precision of measurements, such as in atomic clocks, and to study complex systems in physics, chemistry, and biology. Furthermore, understanding large scale entanglement could lead to breakthroughs in our understanding of the universe and the development of new technologies.
