Spooky Quantum Entanglment

A forum set up for physics questions from students in the courses PHYS1121, 1131, 1221 and 1331 at the University of New South Wales. It is intended for questions that cannot readily be answered in class,
either because they fall outside the main syllabus and therefore would be distraction (however interesting) or for other reasons.

This looks complicated, and there's not much explanation of why different wavelengths were used or what was entangled with what.
However, quantum entanglement is indeed weird, and rather easier to understand in simpler cases. The Wiki introduction is a good place to start.
