Title: Quantum images
Description: In this photo montage of actual quantum images, two laser beams coming from the bright glare in the distance transmit images of a cat-like face at two slightly different frequencies (represented by the orange and the purple colors). The twisted lines indicate that the seemingly random changes or fluctuations that occur over time in any part of the orange image are strongly interconnected or entangled with the fluctuations of the corresponding part in the purple image. Though false color has been added to the cats faces, they are otherwise actual images obtained in the experiment.
