A team of researchers from Finland, Russia, China, and the USA has recently discovered that a temperature difference can “entangle” pairs of electrons in superconducting structures. This process is called quantum entanglement and is said to be the key to next-gen communication and computing technology.
The leader of the team, Professor Pertii Hakonen, describes it as “the cornerstone of the novel quantum technologies”. By using a device created by a superconductor layered with graphene and metal electrodes, electrons are split by heat, while still being tangled.
This work has the potential to revolutionize and have major implications on next-gen technologies.
