  • It is shown that the data of the Hensen et al. Bell test experiment exhibits anomalous postselection that can fully account for the apparent violation of the CHSH inequality. A simulation of a local realist model implementing similar postselection is presented. The model produces an apparent violation of CHSH indistinguishable from that of the experiment. The experimental data also appears to violate no-signaling, and it is shown how postselection can produce an artifactual violation of no… CONTINUE READING
