Thousands of atoms entangled with a single photon

Result could make atomic clocks more accurate

27-Mar-2015

Physicists from MIT and the University of Belgrade have developed a new technique that can successfully entangle 3,000 atoms using only a single photon. The results, published in the journal Nature, represent the largest number of particles that have ever been mutually entangled experimentally. ...
