Title: Physics, quantum computing, quantum images
Description: Closeup of two "quantum images" created with the help of a "pump" laser beam. The two images are "entangled," so that if there is a change in the intensity in one region ("pixel") of the image, there would be an identical change in the intensity in the corresponding pixel in the second image. In this experiment, one of the images is delayed on its arrival to a detector, so that the correlations between the two images can be out of sync by up to 27 nanoseconds, something that is potentially useful for managing data to a future "quantum computer."
