quantum entanglement

[‚kwän·təm in′taŋ·gəl·mənt]
(quantum mechanics)
The property of two particles with a common origin whereby a measurement on one of the particles determines not only its quantum state but the quantum state of the other particle as well.

The resolution of the robustness of the entanglement process in classical scale quantum entanglement experiments is thus achieved within the wave-particle q-object explanation of the process in which entangled state q-objects have definite physical characteristics at emission time.
Experimental verification of nonlocality and hence the completeness of the quantum theory, leads to the conclusion of the fundamental existence of nonlocal interactions, indicating that some super psi wave function ([PSI]) that was the origin of quantum entanglement at the big bang, exists.
Quantum entanglement is used for the superposition of different states of correlated particles, where the state of each particle cannot be described independently.
In quantum entanglement, "when you measure one half of the entangled pair, the other half instantly assumes the exact opposite state," without physical contact or other communicative means.
The basic thesis builds off the application to theology of the phenomenon of quantum entanglement proposed in the last decade or so (by John Polkinghorne and Kirk Wegter-McNelly, among others) and seeks to extend such to understanding the doctrine of the Trinity.
The theoretical results bolster the relatively new and exciting idea that the laws of gravity holding together the universe may not be fundamental, but arise from something else: quantum entanglement.
The conferences focus on linking information science and life sciences on the basis of quantum theory, and the fifth gave special attention to quantum entanglement, simulating biological systems, brain function, quantum-like dynamics, and adaptive systems.

Christopher Morley Jazz Entanglement Ant Law Guitarist Ant Law takes inspiration from quantum physics for the title of his debut album - a- apparently when particles such as photons, electrons and molecules continue to instantaneously respond to their entangled counterparts even after separation it is called quantum entanglement.
Quantum entanglement describes a non-separable state of two or more quantum objects and has certain properties which contradict common physical sense.
The atomic Wehrl entropy can be used as a quantifier of the quantum entanglement between two-level atom and coherent field.
The two specialise in quantum entanglement, a phenomenon of particle physics that has been proven by experiments but remains poorly understood.
