News:Scientists from S N Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, Kolkata have developed a novel protocol to find out whether a pair of electrons is in a Quantum entanglement state.


  • Quantum Entanglement: It is the physical phenomenon that occurs when a pair or group of particles is generated and interacts in a way such that the quantum state of each particle of the pair or group cannot be described independently of the state of the others.
  • Significance: This concept can be used in emerging technologies such as quantum computing among others.

Additional Facts:

  • Quantum computing:It is the use of quantum-mechanical phenomena such as superposition and entanglement to perform computation. Computers that perform quantum computations are known as quantum computers.
