Entanglement is the physical property that marks the most striking deviation of the quantum from the classical world. It has been mentioned first by the great Austrian Physicist Erwin Schr¨odinger in 1935 (an introduction to this and other quantum phenomena is given in [1]). Yet, despite this theoretical prediction now being 80 years old, and the famous experimental verifications by Alain Aspect dating back to the early eighties [2], entanglement and its use entered mainstream physics as a key element of quantum information science [3] only in the 1990's.
