Quantum entanglement, the uncanny
coupling of distant quantum objects, is increasingly seen as the
fundamental feature of quantum systems, replacing (or perhaps explaining)
the complementarity of that Bohr promoted for that position. Prof.
Fine looks at the development of this concept, which originates in the
writings of Einstein and Schödinger,
and has now became a technological resource (for instance in the
development of quantum cryptography and teleportation). He asks
whether entanglement is essentially a non-classical feature and whether it
is tied into holistic quantum metaphysics.
