At the University of Delaware (USA), they developed an interesting project that combines science and art. In one of these projects, the ghost of Einstein appeared.
Michael Don, a graduate student at the American School of Electrical and Computer Engineering University of Delaware, Created the ghost with the technique described by Einstein himself. Michael Don explained his work this way:
Albert Einstein (Albert Einstein) is reminiscent of Andy Warhol (Andy Warhol) pop art, as a symbol of kitsch culture.
However, the simple recognition of society’s tendency to reduce famous icons to consumer goods, coupled with the distorted nature of portraits, makes us reconsider the ideal image of famous geniuses.
Will Einstein’s ghost look at us from the outside and challenge us to discover his humanity? Or does “ghost shadow” just refer to the imaging process inspired by Einstein himself? In “Science” magazine: Excited by the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) effect, entangled quantum photons can be used to create “phantom” images without seeing objects.
Einstein called it the “long-distance phantom effect.” It uses a quantum mechanical phenomenon called “entanglement” (N. del T: also known as “nonlocality” in Spanish, “entangled quantum state” or EPR-Einstein Podolski Rosen Tender paradox; English means “entanglement”).
Subsequent research demonstrated ghost imaging (GI) using classical optics without quantum entanglement. They used this technology to create Einstein’s ghost.

These homemade ghost images are created using a low-cost projector as a structured light source and a web camera as an image generator.
