Quantum entangled magnets.
« on: 02/06/2014 10:48:29 »
Lets say we get 2 entangled electrons from a superconductor cooper pair and some how split them up and replace the valence electrons of 2 magnets with the entangled electrons.

(do this in bulk so that all the valence electrons from the 2 magnets are entangled)

now if you change the polarity of one magnet would it automatically change the polarity of the other magnet?

When that happens the electrons are no longer entangled.

In fact if there are a great number of ways that two entangled particles can become unentangled. For example; if one of the particles interacts with something in the environment the entanglement might be transferred to the environment and the two particles themselves would no longer be entangled. Maintaining entanglement is hard because of interactions with the environment.

That can't be done.

No. Such a thing would constitute instataneous communication, which is impossble.

I am a new member in this forum site. I contribute something about quantum entangled magnets.
In a breakthrough in quantum physics, scientists were able to create the phenomenon of quantum entanglement microscopically using large magnets at room temperature.
