Can Humans See ‘Spooky’ Quantum Images?
Quantum physics deals with the realm of the very small, and most of us never expect to see the weird world it describes. But could we? Recently, scientist Geraldo Barbosa of Northwestern University designed an experiment to answer that question.
The quantum effect Barbosa is hoping to see is called quantum entanglement, in which two or more particles can become “entangled” so that even after they are separated in space, when an action is performed on one particle, the other particle responds immediately.
