  • Do We Really Understand Quantum Mechanics?
Entanglement is a fundamental resource in quantum information theory. It allows performing new kinds of communication, such as quantum teleportation and quantum dense coding. It is an essential ingredient in some quantum cryptographic protocols and in quantum algorithms. We give a brief overview of the concept of entanglement in quantum mechanics, and discuss the major results and open problems related to the recent scientific progress in this field.

All information in quantum systems is, notwithstanding Bell's theorem, localized. Measuring or otherwise interacting with a quantum system S has no effect on distant systems from which S is

Experimental quantum teleportation

It is shown that during teleportation, one of a pair of entangled photons are subjected to a measurement such that the second photon of the entangled pair acquires the polarization of the initial photon.

Entanglement purification for quantum communication

This work presents a scheme for the entanglement purification of general mixed entangled states, which achieves 50 per cent of the success probability of schemes based on the CNOT operation, but requires only simple linear optical elements.
