Using Wolfgang Pauli's Exclusion Principle for communication

  1. Dec 25, 2012 #1
    has anyone worked on using the spin of certain sister pairs of subatomic particles as digital communication that is that to have a device that spins one sister particle one way or another, that spins its sister particle in a receiver on the other side of the world or universe where a sensors detects the spin and turns it into digital communication. Or what about using it to transfer energy say from a probe collecting solar energy somehow using this energy to spin one sister particle and the energy been havested from the spin of the other sister particle say on earth?

    That is not possible, not even in theory.
    Even if you have entangled particles, every measurement or interaction to fix/chance its state in a way the receiver could notice breaks entanglement.

    In addition to what has already been mentioned:

    The result of the spin is random, (unpredictable/un-controlable), thus ("useful") information cannot be transfered.
