nonlinear crystal

nonlinear crystal

[′nän‚lin·ē·ər ′krist·əl]
(solid-state physics)
A crystal in which some influence (such as stress, electric field, or magnetic field) produces a response (such as strain, electric polarization, or magnetization) which is not proportional to the influence.

Physicists have discovered that if they shine a laser beam into a certain type of so-called nonlinear crystal, roughly one in ten billion of the photons that pass through it will come out transformed into two photons.
If that incoming light first emerges from nonlinear crystal to create entangled photon pairs, one photon of each entangled pair can be directed into the enclosed area while its entangled partner bypasses the enclosure on its way to a photodetector.
