Quantum theory describes nature at the smallest scales. It says that particles which interacted in the past can remain intimately linked, no matter how far apart they become separated. This intrinsic link, known as quantum entanglement, is responsible for many of the most fascinating and counter-intuitive phenomena in quantum theory. These phenomena, such as quantum nonlocality and teleportation, have shown us the amazing possibilities available in nature, especially for processing information. Paul Skrzypczyk’s research focuses on the full spectrum of fundamentally new and extraordinary ways in which quantum entanglement allows us to process information, and what this in turn teaches us about the very fabric of nature.
