# Explanation of Photon Navigation in the Mach-Zehnder Interferometer

@inproceedings{Pons2020ExplanationOP, title={Explanation of Photon Navigation in the Mach-Zehnder Interferometer}, author={Dirk J. Pons}, year={2020} }

Photons in interferometers manifest the functional ability to simultaneously navigate both paths through the device, but eventually appear at only one outlet. How this relates to the physical behaviour of the particle is still ambiguous, even though mathematical representation of the problem is adequate. This paper applies a non-local hidden-variable (NLHV) solution, in the form of the Cordus theory, to explain photon path dilemmas in the Mach–Zehnder (MZ) interferometer. The findings suggest…
