A group of Dutch scientists conducted experiments to prove that the phenomenon of quantum entanglement is possible.
This phenomenon means that pairs of sub-atomic particles can be connected over space and time. They also affect each other despite the distance between them.
Einstein did not believe that quantum entanglement is possible. John Stewart Bell was another scientist who conducted experiments to disprove that quantum entanglement was possible.
The results of his tests had elements which could invalidate proof of entanglement.
A team of Dutch scientists conducted an experiment in which two electrons were positioned in traps at a distance of 1.3 kilometres. Based on the observation of these trapped electrons, scientists concluded that they showed the same activity at the same time. However, their actions are always opposite, meaning that when one is up, the other is down.
It can be concluded that the phenomenon of quantum entanglement is possible. The success of this experiment is important for the future research in quantum physics.
