Complementarity and Uncertainty in Mach-Zehnder Interferometry and beyond

  title={Complementarity and Uncertainty in Mach-Zehnder Interferometry and beyond},
  author={Paul Busch and Christopher Shilladay},
A coherent account of the connections and contrasts between the principles of complementarity and uncertainty is developed starting from a survey of the various formalizations of these principles. The conceptual analysis is illustrated by means of a set of experimental schemes based on Mach-Zehnder interferometry. In particular, path detection via entanglement with a probe system and (quantitative) quantum erasure are exhibited to constitute instances of joint unsharp measurements of… CONTINUE READING
