Researchers from MIT and University of Belgrade have taking a long leap in applying the quantum property of entanglement of to macro systems and has claimed that they have tied together a surplus 2,900 rubidium atoms with a single photon. The lead author Vladan Vuletić says this is a “new class” of entangled states, and eventually this will aid in creating even a more specific atomic clocks, as a clack drifting even by less than a single second is still not accurate enough over the life span of the Sun. Entangling a large number of atoms in one of the method of enhancing the clock accuracy.

A classical-physics atomic clock is stands on the oscillations of atoms in a cloud and is proportional to the square root of the number of atoms. MIT researchers states the application of entanglement to the cloud, it is possible to convert square-root relationship into a linear one. A tripling of a...
