While the slogan "no measurement without disturbance" has established itself under the name of the Heisenberg effect in the consciousness of the scientifically interested public, a precise statement of this fundamental feature of the quantum world has remained elusive, and serious attempts at rigorous formulations of it as a consequence of quantum theory have led to seemingly conflicting preliminary results. Here we show that despite recent claims to the contrary [L. Rozema et al, Phys. Rev…

It is demonstrated both theoretically and experimentally that there is no tradeoff if the outcome of measuring B is more uncertain than that of A, and the tradeoff will be switched on and well characterized by the Jensen-Shannon divergence.
