• Basically, most cameras capture light that bounces off an object. But in the experiment, researchers were able to record photons that never strike an object. This phenomenon is usually referred to as "ghost imaging."
  • The researchers use two laser beams with "entangled" quantum properties, so their photons share commonalities even if they're far apart. Alter one laser beam, and you can get the other one do to something surprising.
  • The team has applied for a patent but practical applications might be far off. The team didn't produce new physics but rather demonstrated something experimentally that had never been done before.
