Information on Entanglement

Atomic dance

What the teams at the University of Innsbruck and the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (Nist) did was teleport qubits from one atom to another with the help of a third auxiliary atom.

It relies on a strange behaviour that exists at the atomic scale known as "entanglement", whereby two particles can have related properties even when they are far apart. Einstein called it a "spooky action".

Lots of people haven't a clue what entanglement is all about. That's why this site is most helpful

To understand quantum entanglement, several ideas and words must be explained, especially the idea of a photon. The photon is a key concept in physics, and so critical to entanglement that its behaviours must be fully understood. Yet before delving into the details of photons, we need to understand the world of the very tiny, beginning with waves and atoms.

I would like to thank the person for giving this link, as it can helps others as well as myself understand the entanglement issues much more easily through generalization.

I would like to respond in kind.
