The Big Bell Test-Global physics experiment challenges Einstein with the help of 100,000 volunteers 2018-05-11
·    Simultaneous experiments on five continents challenge Einstein’s principle of local realism.
·    Participants contributed to the experiment generating more than 90 million bits, unpredictably choosing among measurements to escape a paradox known as the “freedom-of-choice loophole”.
·    The study has been published in Nature.
On November 30th, 2016, more than 100,...
Satellite-based Photon Entanglement Distributed Over 1200 Kilometers 2017-06-16
A team of Chinese scientists has realized the satellite-based distribution of entangled photon pairs over 1200 km. The photon pairs were demonstrated to be still entangled after travelling long distances and Bell’s inequality was shown to be violated under strict Einstein locality conditions. 

This experiment was made through two satellite-to-ground downlinks with a summed length va...
A Step Towards Satellite Constellation-Based Quantum Communication 2017-08-01
A team of scientists led by Prof. PAN Jianwei and his colleagues PENG Chengzhi and ZHANG Qiang from the University of Science and Technology of China demonstrated a 53-km free-space quantum key distribution (QKD) during the daytime, the ground-based experiments addressing high channel loss and noise of daylight, thus confirms the feasibility of satellite constellation (SC)-based globa...
Double quantum-teleportation milestone is Physics World 2015 Breakthrough of the Year 2015-12-11
The Physics World 2015 Breakthrough of the Year goes to Jian-Wei Pan and Chaoyang Lu of the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei, for being the first to achieve the simultaneous quantum teleportation of two inherent properties of a fundamental particle – the photon. Nine other achievements are highly commended and cover topics ranging from astronomy to medical physi...
