I want to do some experiments of my own with entangled photons. However I'm not at a university, nor do I have access to a multi-million dollar lab, and I don't work in a top secret government facility were I can do this. So my first task is to find a way to make my own entangled photons. Some research I've done shows that a beta-barium borate crystal has a structure that when photons enter may be converted down into two polarized photons. So am I wrong in saying its as simple as shining a laser through a crystal? I know then next task of measuring this is were it gets convoluted. But am I right is it really that simple?

Additional info:

Goal = My goal is to discover a way to harness entangled photons and use them in data communication.

Why am I interested = Because photons are cool and I want people to be like oh yea that guy Bryan made the space internet. Seriously though I want the world to be able to share data as if we were right next to one another. I want to get past the point of having physical tethering whether its radio frequency, cables, microwaves ect.

Resources I need = Well to be honest a lot. As the above mentioned I am way not qualified for this.


Photons, the elementary particles that make up light, are known to be quick, weightless and to not communicate with each other. Be that as it may, in new Write My Assignment analyses, physicists at MIT and Harvard have now made another type of light, demonstrating that gatherings of photons can be made to connect with each other, back off and increase mass.
