This crystal can split light particles

June 27, 2017

How unusual non-linear crystals can entangle particles of light, or photons.
Thanks to non-profit for sponsoring this video. Go to to learn more about MIT's Circuits and Electronics course or other classes from some of the top universities in the world.

Quantum entanglement involves a special process of splitting photons into two. But it involves a process and a crystal that can split photons. How does that lead to entangled particles?

To find out more about the specifics of how to entangle photons, check out this awesome video from whentheappledrops
