    Can matter and antimatter be quantum entangled and what would be the result?

    thay entangled in a way that antimatter is matter back in time

    Hm, that is quite an interesting question. I don't see how they cannot. However based upon the way of entanglement, it would highly unlikely be entangled with its own anti particle. But sure, why not? (anti-normal particle entanglement of the same particles occur naturally but are hardly stable. And a separation of the two into stable states would most likely break entanglement. Maybe with Ion traps.

    But what would happen exactly, I don't know. You could try and model it?
    In the information age ignorance is a choice.

    How would i do that?I am not physicist.

    Well first of all you would need anti-matter. So a trap and isolation. Then second you would need it to interact somehow. Like put them into an optical cavity.
    Thinking of it, If I'd fix a hyrdogen molecule and an anti hydrogen molecule in an optical cavity. Not much would really change, as the enegy transitions would still be the same. Yet perhaps reversed, so there would be a slight phase change. But that is it. The world would be more or less the same. The problem is, If I'd overlap the wavefunctions of the electron and positron they'll annhilate and so it wouldn't be entangled.
