What experiment (laboratory equipment) in quantum theory lead to the development of quantum entanglement as it relates to Quantum Computing?
I choose this research question because of an
article I saw a couple of years ago on recent Nobel Prize winners of chemistry
and physics. The award was for the creation of a Bose-Einstein condensate. It
is analogous to a L.A.S.E.R. Instead of light
particles, photons, the Bose-Einstein condensate is a coherent beam of larger
particles called ions. The article went on to say the condensate was predicted
by Albert Einstein back around 1905 but here was no way to produce it
with the technology of the day. Further experimentation with the condensate
lead to the entanglement states of the ions. This entanglement may lead to a
new type of Quantum Computer.
