Scientists have managed to entangle two "quantum memories" at a distant much bigger than ever before, a breakthrough that could one day change the way the internet works.
To entangle those two quantum memories, researchers had to shoot photons, or individual particles of light, along the 50-kilometre cable.
One can think that, if one can separate quantum entangled particles then use them to transmit information between them. But the researchers entangled at the end of the cable;
After making their way over that distance, the two memories were able to interfere with each other, making the experiment a success and demonstrating that two quantum memories could become entangled over such a distance.
My questions are;
- What is quantum internet
- What is the relation of it with quantum entanglement
