Does quantum entanglement make faster-than-light communication possible? What is NOT random? http://bit.ly/NOTrandoVe First, I know this video is not easy to understand. Thank you for taking the time to attempt to understand it. I've been working on this for over six months over which time my understanding has improved. Quantum entanglement and spooky action at a distance are still debated by professors of quantum physics (I know because I discussed this topic with two of them). Does hidden information (called hidden variables by physicists) exist? If it does, the experiment violating Bell inequalities indicates that hidden variables must update faster than light - they would be considered 'non-local'. On the other hand if you don't consider the spins before you make the measurement then you could simply say hidden variables don't exist and whenever you measure spins in the same direction you always get opposite results, which makes sense since angular momentum must be conserved in the universe. Everyone agrees that quantum entanglement does not allow information to be transmitted faster that light. There is no action either detector operator could take to signal the other one - regardless of the choice of measurement direction, the measured spins are random with 50/50 probability of up/down.

Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) is based on physics rather than classic information theory. You get a quick, easily understood lesson on entangled photons, happy and sad photons that are truly random, not pseudo-random. The photons can be "random and correlated over a great distance". It's not just theory; it's being tested at SDG&E. Duncan Earl discusses the theory of QKD, and then Adam Crain talks about how this can be used for key distribution in an ICS protocol, using SSP-21 as an example.

Scientists all over the world are working towards new methods to realize a unhackable internet, an internet based on quantum entanglement – an invisible quantum mechanical connection as networking links. The greatest challenge is the scaling to large networks that share entangled links with many particles and network nodes. Researchers in Delft and Oxford now managed to distill a strong entangled link by combining multiple weaker quantum links into one. This method is essential to realize a trustworthy quantum network between several quantum nodes. Movie in collaboration with Bruno van Wayenburg.

BEIJING — China is leading the pack in terms of quantum space experiments after the country announced that setting a new distance record for beaming entangled particles from space to Earth. The experiment was conducted from the Quantum Experiments at Space Scale (QUESS) satellite, nicknamed Micius, in reference to a fifth century B.C. Chinese philosopher. It is believed photons travel more smoothly in the near-vacuum of space. Quantum communication relies on a phenomenon known as quantum entanglement, in which particles influence each other, even when separated by great distances. A photon can be split into pairs of entangled photons by a laser beam. The entangled photons influence one another, so that if one photon changes its state, the other reacts instantly by taking up a state relative to the photon. The photons remain entangled even when one is far away. Quantum communication could greatly enhance security, as any interception of the information will necessarily alter the state of the photons, thus giving away the eavesdropper. According to Science, the team produced entangled photons by sending a laser beam through a light-altering crystal onboard the satellite. The photons were sent to two receiving stations in Delingha and Lijiang, 1,200 km apart. Opposite polarization states were measured at the two stations, confirming the entanglement — otherwise known as “spooky action” — was achieved over a record distance. ------------------------------------------------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Quantum bits or 'qubits' can exist in a superposition state of both zero and one simultaneously. This means that a set of two qubits can be in a superposition of four states, which therefore require four numbers to uniquely identify the state. So the amount of information stored in N qubits is two to the power of N classical bits. Thank you to Andrea Morello and UNSW. For more info, check out: http://bit.ly/17wZ7lt

Even though Albert Einstein (together with collaborators in the EPR Paradox paper) wanted to show that quantum mechanics must be incomplete because it was nonlocal (he didn't like "spooky action at a distance"), John Bell managed to prove that any local real hidden variable theory would have to satisfy certain simple statistical properties that quantum mechanical experiments (and the theory that describes them) violate. Since then, GHZ and others have managed to extend the theoretical work, and Alain Aspect performed the first Bell test experiment in the late 1980s.

The math of superposition and quantum states. minutephysics channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/minutephysics Brought to you by you: http://3b1b.co/light-quantum-thanks And by Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/3b1b Huge thanks to my friend Evan Miyazono, both for encouraging me to do this project, and for helping me understand many things along the way. This is a simple primer for how the math of quantum mechanics, specifically in the context of polarized light, relates to the math of classical waves, specifically classical electromagnetic waves. I will say, if you *do* want to go off and learn the math of quantum mechanics, you just can never have too much linear algebra, so check out the series I did at http://3b1b.co/essence-of-linear-algebra Mistakes: As several astute commenters have pointed out, the force arrow is pointing the wrong way at 2:18. Thanks for the catch! *Note on conventions: Throughout this video, I use a single-headed right arrow to represent the horizontal direction. The standard in quantum mechanics is actually to use double-headed arrows for describing polarization states, while single-headed arrows are typically reserved for the context of spin. What's the difference? Well, using a double-headed arrow to represent the horizontal direction emphasizes that in a quantum mechanical context, there's no distinction between left and right. They each have the same measurable state: horizontal (e.g. they pass through horizontally oriented filters). Once you're in QM, these kets are typically vectors in a more abstract space where vectors are not necessarily spatial directions but instead represent any kind of state. Because of how I chose to motivate things with classical waves, where it makes sense for this arrow to represent a unit vector in the right direction, rather than the more abstract idea of a horizontal state vector, I chose to stick with the single-headed notation throughout, though this runs slightly against convention.

What is entanglement theory? It is a Mystery, and here is a potential solution. But its implications are so paradigm shattering that most scientists refuse to believe it. Maybe we can't handle the truth? Imagine you found a pair of dice such that no matter how you tossed them, they always added up to 7. Besides becoming the richest man in Vegas, what you would have there is something called an entangled pair of dice. You could now separate these entangled dice. You could have your friend Alice take one of these to Macau, while the other one stays with you in Las Vegas. And as soon as you rolled your dice, the other one would always instantly show a number that added up to 7. Since this happens instantly, did your dice communicate at faster than speed of light to Macau? Scientists can create entangled photons, for example, by shining a laser on a nonlinear optical crystal. The Entanglement means that a pair of photons act like a single entity rather than two separate particles. To understand entanglement better, you first have to accept the fact that at the quantum scale, reality is fuzzy. Reality really doesn’t know what it is, until it is measured. This is like a single dice tossed in the air that doesn’t have a distinct face until it lands. When tossed up, it is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 all at once. Quantum particles are similar in that they do not have distinct properties until they are measured. Particles such as a photon exists in all possible states simultaneously. But when it is measured, it is in only one state. And if the photon is entangled, this measurement of one particle causes its entangled pair to simultaneously exhibit the opposite state, no matter what the distance is between them. Einstein disliked this idea of one particle influencing the other over long distances so much, he called it “spooky action at a distance.” Einstein believed that the particles carried information about each other at the moment that they were entangled and were close to each other. He thought the properties of both particles were determined locally and carried along from the beginning. So in Einstein’s view, the two dice "knew" what they would show before they were tossed. But in the quantum world, this is impossible, because particles are fuzzy until measured. In 1964 the Irish physicist John Bell devised a test that actually could prove whether information was encoded within the entangled particles or whether the spooky action at a distance was real. He did this by taking advantage of the fact that in QM, measurement affects the thing you are measuring. If information was encoded at the time of particle creation, as Einstein believed, then nothing we do randomly to one particle should affect the other. And what this test found conclusively proved that Quantum mechanics is correct – that Einstein was wrong, and that spooky action at a distance does in fact take place. So are entangled particles communicating instantaneously? Even if the speed was 5 miles per hour faster than the speed of light, it would violate Einstein’s theory of relativity and our picture of reality would completely collapse if this was the case. So most scientists have come to the conclusion that no faster than light communication is taking place. So if no signal is telling these particles how to coordinate their results, what’s going on? There is another real possibility that is not popular among scientists, but that Bell himself proposed, and that is called superdeterminism. And here is how it could solve the mystery of entanglement: Bell proposed the idea of absolute determinism in the universe, the complete absence of free will. Suppose everything in reality is predetermined. It cannot be changed. The reality that you live in has already happened. No matter what you say or do, there is no free will. Our behavior and decisions, including our belief that we are free to choose to do one experiment rather than another, is absolutely predetermined. If this is the case, the mystery disappears. There is no need for a faster-than-light signal to tell particle A what measurement has been carried out on particle B, because the universe, including particle A, already 'knows' what that measurement will be. It is predetermined. Could this be the real reality?

Speaker: Anne Hillebrand (University of Oxford) Title: Superdense coding with GHZ and quantum key distribution with W in the ZX-calculus Event: QPL 2011 (Radboud University Nijmegen) Abstract: Quantum entanglement is a key resource in many quantum protocols, like quantum teleportation and quantum cryptography. Yet entanglement makes protocols presented in Dirac notation difﬁcult to follow and check. This is why Coecke and Duncan have introduced a diagrammatic language for quantum protocols, called the ZX-calculus . This diagrammatic notation is both intuitive and formally rigorous. It is a simple, graphical, high level language that emphasises the composition of systems and naturally captures the essentials of quantum mechanics. In the author's MSc thesis it has been shown for over 25 quantum protocols that the ZX-calculus provides a relatively easy and more intuitive presentation. Moreover, the author embarked on the task to apply categorical quantum mechanics on quantum security; earlier works did not touch anything but Bennett and Brassard's quantum key distribution protocol, BB84. Two of the protocols in , namely superdense coding with the Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger state and quantum key distribution with the W-state , will be presented in this paper.

Chinese scientists have built the world's first quantum computing machine, paving the way for this technology to outperform classical, or conventional, computers. Scientists announced their achievement during a press conference in the Shanghai Institute for Advanced Studies of University of Science and Technology of China on Wednesday. Recently, Chinese leading quantum physicist Pan Jianwei, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and his colleagues, Lu Chaoyang and Zhu Xiaobo, of the University of Science and Technology of China, and Wang Haohua, of Zhejiang University, set two international records in quantum control of the maximal numbers of entangled photonic quantum bits and entangled superconducting quantum bits. Pan said quantum computers could, in principle, solve certain problems faster than classical computers. Despite substantial progress in the past two decades, building quantum machines that can actually outperform classical computers in some specific tasks - an important milestone termed "quantum supremacy" - remains challenging. The test results show the sampling rate of this prototype is at least 24,000 times faster than international counterparts, according to Pan's team. At the same time, the prototype quantum computing machine is 10 to 100 times faster than the first electronic computer, ENIAC, and the first transistor computer, TRADIC, in running the classical algorithm, Pan said. It is the first quantum computing machine based on single photons that goes beyond the early classical computer, The achievement was published online in the latest issue of Nature Photonics this week.

In the past decade, a striking picture began to form that the way space-time emerges in quantum gravity is, through the holographic duality, intimately connected to the way quantum bits are entangled in a quantum computer. In this talk, I will give an introduction to this exciting new frontier of research, highlighting how key concepts from quantum information theory such as quantum entanglement, error correction and tensor networks may offer new tools and conceptual insight.
We present a method to control the detection events in quantum key distribution systems that use gated single-photon detectors. We employ bright pulses as faked states, timed to arrive at the avalanche photodiodes outside the activation time. The attack can remain unnoticed, since the faked states do not increase the error rate per se. This allows for an intercept--resend attack, where an eavesdropper transfers her detection events to the legitimate receiver without causing any errors.

Learn about parallel computing, GPUs, and quantum computers! Subscribe! ► http://bit.ly/Scopes_Sub ◄ Electrical Engineering Podcast: https://eestalktech.com Agenda: 0:40 When processor speeds stopped increasing, microprocessor companies started to increase the quantity of cores on an IC 1:44 Now, the increased use of special processing cores is more popular GPUs are examples of this. A GPU is different from an x86 or ARM processor. GPUs handle vector math and matrix math. Originally, they were for processing pixels. But, they use floating point math to calculate pixel values. A GPU is very useful if you have a number of identical operations you have to calculate at the same time. 4:00 GPUs were daughter cards, but recently GPU manufacturers have released low power parts for embedded applications. They have several traditional cores and a GPU. Now you can build embedded systems to take advantage of machine learning algorithms that would have normally require too much processing power thermal power. 4:50 These are called heterogeneous processors or heterogeneous processors. A heterogeneous processor has different types of cores, and a software architect figures out how to distribute tasks. 6:00 We will start to see heterogeneous processors with multiple types of cores very soon. Traditional processors are best for algorithms on integer + floating point operations where there isn't a benefit to doing more than one thing at a time. A GPU is good for multiple parallel computations, so it's useful when there aren't tight dependency chains. Neither is good at real-time processing. If you have real-time constraints there is a lot of computing required. So, a new type of hardware is necessary. Right now, ASICs and FPGAs fill that gap like we discussed in our other electrical engineering podcast episodes. 9:50 Quantum cores could be on processor boards eventually. Quantum computers that can beat traditional computers will be introduced within the next 50 years, and as soon as the next 10 years. 11:50 Quantum computing is reinventing processing. Quantum computers are going to be best at handling new and different types of problems. 12:50 There is a catalog on the web of problems that would be better for a quantum on a computer than a traditional computer. 13:30 People are creating algorithms for computers that don't exist! The Economist estimated that the total spend on quantum computing research is over $1B per year globally. A large portion of that is generated by the potential of these algorithms and papers. Quantum computers won't completely replace traditional processors. 15:00 Lee - the quantum computing industry is still speculative, but the potential is so great that neither large computing companies nor industrialized countries want to be left behind if it does work out. The promise of quantum computing goes past the commercial industry, it's international and inter-industry. Long whitepapers from different governments lay out their quantum computing research strategy. There's also venture capitalists investing in quantum computing companies. 17:40 Is this R&D public, or is there proprietary information out there? It is a mixture, many startups and companies have software components that they are open source, and claim to have "bits of physics" working (quantum bits, qbits), but there are definitely trade secrets. 19:50 Quantum communication comes down to space lasers! Engineering with quantum effects could become an industry. You can send photons with entangled states. The Chinese government has a satellite that can generate these photons, and if anyone reads them they can tell because the wave function collapsed too soon. ac Quantum sensing techniques will allow us to develop accelerometers and gyroscopes orders of magnitude more sensitive than what we have now. 21:35 Quantum engineering could become a new field of study. Much like electrical engineering started 140 years ago, electronics engineering started roughly 70 years ago, computer science came out of math and electrical engineering.The birth of quantum engineering could be considered to be some point in the next 5 years or last 5 years. 23:00 Lee's favorite quantum state is the Bell state, which encapsulates much of the quantum weirdness in one small snippet of mathematics. #QuantumComputing #QuantumEngineering #quantumbits #quantumcomputer #GPU #GPUs #processor #parallelprocessing #processing #podcast #electricalengineering #electronics #electricalengineeringpodcast #engineeringpodcast#processor

F. D. M. Haldane (Princeton University) presents at the Fred Kavli Special Symposium on Quantum Matter & Quantum Information at the APS March Meeting 2017 in New Orleans, LA. View abstract below. ------------------------------------------------- Topological States of Quantum Condensed Matter ------------------------------------------------- Over the past three decades or more, it has slowly emerged that many unexpected properties of the ground states of certain condensed matter systems are protected by robust non-trivial topological properties of their quantum entanglement, with consequences such as characteristic inevitably-present edge states. Early work exposed such properties in one and two-dimensional systems and the discovery of 3D topological insulators finally completed dimensional coverage. Interest in topological states has grown as some of them are thought to be potential platforms for quantum information processing. I will describe some selected examples of topological states of matter and the history of their discovery.

Most physicists take it for granted that the experimental violation of Bell’s inequality provides evidence that it is not possible to completely describe the state of a physical system in terms of purely local information when this system is entangled with some other system. We disagree. Provided we redefine appropriately what is the information-theoretic state of a quantum system, it becomes possible to recover the whole from the description of its parts. This is in sharp contrast with the standard formalism of quantum mechanics in which the density matrix provides all there is to say about the state of a system. According to our formalism, there is no need to invoke supernatural nonlocality in order to explain everything standard quantum mechanics tells us that we can observe. We show, however, that this is inconsistent with the usual belief held among Everettians that the universal wavefunction can be taken as the complete representation of reality. Inspired by Plato and Kant, we introduce and contrast the notions of noumenal and phenomenal states of physical systems: the former corresponds to the complete but unknowable state of the system and the latter to what can be perceived about it with the help of arbitrary technology. We exhibit an explicit epimorphism from the former to the latter, which explains the relationship between all that there is and all that can be apprehended. Joint work with Paul Raymond-Robichaud.

Friday, October 24, 2014 James Franson, Professor, Department of Physics University of Maryland (UMBC) Quantum mechanics predicts many effects that may seem impossible from our ordinary view of the world. One of these is the existence of entangled states of two distant particles. The fundamental implications of entanglement were discussed along with some of the implications.

This video extends How Do Quantum Computers Work: http://youtu.be/g_IaVepNDT4 Prof. Morello explains why spin does not mean the particle is actually spinning. Subatomic particles like the electron, neutron, and proton have spin, which means they act like tiny bar magnets. This can be used in quantum computing applications. We thank the UNSW School of Physics Demonstration Unit for providing the double pendulum.
