Three Solid-State Qubits Entangled: Big Step Toward Quantum Error Correction
ScienceDaily (Oct. 1, 2010) — The rules that govern the world of the very small, quantum mechanics, are known for being bizarre. One of the strangest tenets is something called quantum entanglement, in which two or more objects (such as particles of light, called photons) become inextricably linked, so that measuring certain properties of one object reveals information about the other(s), even if they are separated by thousands of miles. Einstein found the consequences of entanglement so unpalatable he famously dubbed it “spooky action at a distance.”
