(TechExplorist) scientists at the Rochester Institute of Technology have demonstrated a new method to precisely measure high-dimensional entanglement from minimal data. The technique can help advance quantum computing and secure communication technologies.
Assistant Professor Gregory Howland, a member of RIT’s Future Photon Initiative, said, “Quantum entanglement is a resource that can be used to do important tasks such as quantum computing or secure communication. Two people that have entangled quantum particles can generate an unbreakable key for sending messages back and forth to one another in such a way that if some third party intercepts the message, by the laws of physics, they can’t decode the message.”
