Physicists have for the first time captured an image of quantum entanglement, which a baffled Albert Einstein once called 'spooky action at a distance'.

Researchers say they have captured visual evidence of a strong form of the elusive phenomenon called Bell entanglement.

Quantum - Entanglement - Particles - Interact - Share

Quantum entanglement is where two particles interact and share their physical states for an instant - no matter how great the distance which separates them.

This connection, despite being impossible under the rules which govern the wider universe, underpins the field of quantum mechanics.

Branch - Study - Rules - Way - Atom

This is the branch of scientific study which seeks to explain and set rules for the way particles smaller than the atom behave.

A team of physicists from the University of Glasgow described how they recorded the phenomenon in a photo for the first time.

System - Stream - Photons - Source - Light

They devised a system which fires a stream of entangled photons from a quantum source of light at 'non-conventional' objects - displayed on liquid-crystal materials which change the phase of the photons as they pass through.

'The image we've managed to capture is an elegant demonstration of a fundamental property of nature, seen for the very first time in the form of an image,' said Paul-Antoine Moreau, of the university's school of physics and astronomy.
