Semiconductor device produces quantum entanglement has a story about scientists at Toshiba Research Europe Ltd and the University of Cambridge who have created a semiconductor device that produces quantum-entangled photons. Quantum entanglement, referred to by Einstein as ‘spooky action at a distance’, is a situation whereby two discrete particles separated by space behave as if they were the same particle. It is believed to be the key to cracking the holy grail of quantum computing. Entangled particles have been created before, but the hardware required is costly and unweildy; this method shows much greater promise for mass manufacturing.

  1. In The Gap series by Stephen Donaldson the Amnion (Earth’s enemy) have developed a method of instantaneous inter-stellar communication by growing atomically identical crystals. Thanks to this post I now know where the author got the idea from. TY AA.
