Entangled photons



Entanglement is a fascinating feature of quantum physics. Albert Einstein pointed out that the theory of quantum physics contradicts our conventional conception of reality [Ein35] and later called the behaviour of entangled quantum objects a spooky action at a distance. Entangled photon pairs and other entangled quantum objects are today routinely investigated in laboratories. Entangled photons are not only fundamentally interesting, but also useful for applications such as quatum cryptography [Urs07].  

Experiments with single events:

1) What is entanglement?
2) How are entangled photons measured?
3) Can entanglement be explained with common sense?

C) Bell states
D) Prove of non-locality
