The new discovery from Toshiba Research Europe and the University of Cambridge can be used in a number of different ways

Researchers from Toshiba Research Europe Ltd. and the University of Cambridge have announced a quantum device that can create entangled light.  The process starts with  a silicon-based device that uses quantum dots inside a block of indium arsenide.  Quantum dots are essentially nanocrystals small enough to exist in the quantum confinement regime.  When the quantum dot is excited by a laser pulse, two electrons in the indium arsenide are excited.  The energy will then be converted into two entangled protons that can be split outside the device.  

The technology has many different uses: including quantum computing, medical imaging, chip production and communications.  Quantum computing, here we come!

Such ignorance. Do any of you read, say, Ars Technica by any chance? Or even just a book! The principles behind quantum entanglement are actually being used already in various kinds of technology.

At the very least one of can admit you don't understand the concept. Never forget, however, that science is not built on belief, but on proven fact and fact alone. No one 'belives' in quantum entanglement, it simply is.

Yeah, what he said... Buncha idiots.

Now where did I put my di-lithium crystals?

I agree with code....Good link xeno.
I just wanted to believe...It looks like someone has to prove it now.
