Vibrating drumheads are entangled quantum mechanically

Bang the drums: this colourized electron microscope image shows the two aluminium drum heads used by the NIST researchers. (Courtesy: J Teufel/NIST) Quantum entanglement between two macroscopic vibrating drumheads has been demonstrated by two independent research groups. As well as being used to study the interface between the quantum and classical worlds, the systems could…
