Probably not. PACS numbers: 03.65.Ta, 03.65.Xp, 14.60.Pq If recent measurements [1] suggesting that neutrinos travel faster than light survive scrutiny, the question of their theoretical interpretation will arise. Here we discuss the possibility that the apparent superluminality is a quantum interference effect, that can be interpreted as a weak measurement [2–5]. Although the available numbers strongly indicate that this explanation is not correct, we consider the idea worth exploring and… Expand
