(SingularityHub) Solutions to three of the essential problems in quantum communication have recently been found using the bizarre properties of quantum entanglement. Entanglement falls victim to decoupling–which is the tendency for entangled particles to become disentangled due to interaction with their surroundings. This makes long distance communication difficult, and, to overcome this, researchers have employed…..
