Entanglement is one of the most striking ways in which quantum physics differs from classical physics, but exactly how it does so and how it can be used can be difficult to pinpoint. In this session, we’ll start from the basics of entanglement and learn about how we create entanglement in the lab, use it in different experiments, and verify it using tools like Bell’s inequalities.
