Iran to conduct photon entanglement test soon: Salehi

Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi says the country will carry out a photon entanglement test within the next few months.

“If carried out successfully, it will be the first time that a country in West Asia and the Muslim world is conducting this test,” Salehi said in an address to the First National Conference on Quantum Technology in Tehran on Sunday, Press TV reported.

He added that Iran had held negotiations with the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) for cooperation in the field of quantum technology.

The AEOI chief said after the landmark nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was signed between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries in 2015, the Islamic Republic became a member of the Euratom club, which is active in the field of advanced technologies.
