Pic Physicists at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, have produced the first-ever image of a strong form of quantum entanglement, known as Bell entanglement.

To achieve this, they devised a system which fires a stream of entangled photons from a quantum source of light at “non-conventional objects” – which change the phase of the photons as they pass through.

Researchers - Camera - Capable - Photons - Image

Researchers then set up a super-sensitive camera capable of detecting single photons which would only take an image when it caught sight of both the photon and its entangled ‘twin’, creating a visible record of entanglement.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is how Bell entanglement looks like:

Quantum - Entanglement - Albert - Einstein - Action

Quantum entanglement was famously described by Albert Einstein as “spooky action at a distance.” In this process, two or more particles can be made to exhibit certain physical properties, and the change to one particle will immediately change the properties of the other, even if they are separated by hundreds of miles.

Quantum entanglement shouldn’t be possible and is one of the reasons scientists find it so challenging to reconcile Einstein’s...
