Quantum entanglement is something that scientists have been trying over the years and were unable to attain due to the facts that they were unaware of. Science has been evolving over the years and apparently, quantum mechanics was not a concept that anyone had heard of, rather was only an unheard piece of the topic that needed more research to be studied or to be introduced to the world of physics. Classical physics has evolved over the years and given revelations that one would not have known otherwise. The fact that quantum mechanics has emerged as a separate topic of studies surprises everyone in the domain of physics.
What has been the discovery in the recent past?
Quantum entanglement which was once thought to be unachievable has taken place and was achieved recently. This was unique as the entanglement took place at a macroscopic level and some at the microscopic level as well. The entanglement was of a millimeter-sized drum and cloud of atoms that were entangled to form a new substance. This took place at the Neils Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen.
The two are now behaving as a single entity and is the reason for everyone’s astonishment. The law says that the bigger the size of the molecules or the particles, the farther they would be in the distance when entangled. A game-changing discovery that will be respected and remembered for long due to the suddenness of the experiment which gave rise to the new particle.
The world of science will remember this and will be working upon this discovery for a long. With more efforts and science into this field, after this experiment was performed, there will be expected changes in the field of quantum mechanics and our understanding of the same.
