A peculiar quantum-physics property called entanglement can be harnessed to make detectors—similar in principle to radar systems used to track airplanes in flight or ships at sea—that are as much as a million times more efficient than existing systems. (via Next Big Future: Quantum entanglement enhanced radar, CT Scans, X-rays could get same image with one million times lower power)
