Einstein's Spook put to Work
University of Vienna
Albert Einstein criticized quantum entanglement as "spooky" because it predicts that
measurement of one member of an entangled pair of particles instantly changes the quantum state
of its distant sibling. To date, experiments confirmed all quantum predictions for entangled
pairs or even triplets and more. The resulting body of experimental evidence severely
challenges a realistic world view. In parallel, quantum entanglement is also emerging as a
cornerstone concept in a new quantum information technology including such concepts as quantum
cryptography, quantum computation, and quantum teleportation.
