Fall Hans Bethe Lecture to focus on 'spooky action'
Einstein called it “spooky action at a distance” – when two photons become entangled so that they respond the same way despite being far apart.
Research on entanglement has led to even stranger things, like quantum teleportation, that can be experimentally proven. In this fall’s Hans Bethe Lecture at Cornell, physicist Anton Zeilinger will explore how quantum entanglement has been applied to cryptography, teleportation and even communication satellites. The free public lecture will be held Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 7:30 p.m. in Schwartz Auditorium, Rockefeller Hall.
