Researchers have developed a new way to measure how quantum information behaves in correlated quantum systems that could be useful for understanding and improving quantum devices and quantum error correction codes.

“We are all excited about the potential of quantum entanglement for quantum information processing,” said Mohamad Niknam, who was a postdoctoral fellow at IQC when he co-authored the paper.
