AEOI Chief: Iran, Europe Hold Talks on Quantom Technology.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi announced that the country's scientists have met their European counterparts to exchange views on quantum technology.

"We are today in the Euratom club. We have held negotiations with the Europeans in the field of quantum technology and we hope to send a number of our scientists to Europe in the future," Salehi said, addressing a ceremony in Tehran on Sunday.

He also underlined that Iran will in the next few months carry out photon entanglement tests, adding that if successful, Iran will be the first country in the Muslim world and West Asia to take the step.

Quantum entanglement is a physical phenomenon that occurs when pairs or groups of particles are generated or interact in ways such that the quantum state of each particle cannot be described independently of the others, even when the particles are separated by a large distance-instead, a quantum state must be described for the system as a whole.

An entangled system is defined to be one whose quantum state cannot be factored as a product of states of its local constituents; that is to say, they are not individual particles but are an inseparable whole. In entanglement, one constituent cannot be fully described without considering the other(s). Note that the state of a composite system is always expressible as a sum, or superposition, of products of states of local constituents; it is entangled if this sum necessarily has more than one term.

Quantum systems can become entangled through various types of interactions. For some ways in which entanglement may be achieved for experimental purposes, see the section below on methods. Entanglement is broken when the entangled particles decohere through interaction with the environment; for example, when a measurement is made.
