The Weekly Quantum Digest: Scientists Are Chipping Away at Spooky Action at a Distance

0

Quantum chips get even spookier, cooling LEGOs and more in this week’s digest of quantum news. 

Spotlight Story: 

“Each chip was then fully programmed to perform a range of demonstrations which utilize the entanglement. The flagship demonstration was a two-chip teleportation experiment, whereby the individual quantum state of a particle is transmitted across the two chips after a quantum measurement is performed. This measurement utilizes the strange behavior of quantum physics, which simultaneously collapses the entanglement link and transfers the particle state to another particle already on the receiver chip.” New Atlas
