Entangled atoms over distance pave way for future quantum networks

London, Feb 4 (PTI) Scientists have entangled two ions over a distance of 230 metres, according to a new study.

Trapped ions have previously only been entangled in one and the same laboratory.

The experiment at the University of Innsbruck, Austria, has showed that trapped ions are a promising platform for future quantum networks that span cities and eventually continents, the study said.
