# Quantum non-locality in two-photon experiments at Berkeley

@article{Chiao1995QuantumNI, title={Quantum non-locality in two-photon experiments at Berkeley}, author={Raymond Y. Chiao and Paul G. Kwiat and Aephraim M. Steinberg}, journal={Quantum and Semiclassical Optics: Journal of The European Optical Society Part B}, year={1995}, volume={7}, pages={259-278} }

The authors review some of the experiments performed over the past few years on two-photon interference. These include a test of Bell's inequalities, a study of the complementarity principle, an application of EPR correlations for dispersion-free time measurements, and an experiment to demonstrate the superluminal nature of the tunnelling process. The non-local character of the quantum world is brought out clearly by these experiments. As the authors explain, however, quantum non-locality is…

The Observer and Access to Information in the Quantum Universe

- PhysicsSynthese Library

The results of a class of quantum eraser experiments can be interpreted as indicating that the collapse of the wave function may not necessarily involve choices by observers in space-time, which is consistent with the presence of a universal Observer in the quantum universe of possibilities.

Tunneling time problem: At the intersection of quantum mechanics, classical probability theory and special relativity

Experimental results are presented showing how the degree of erasure depends on the relative orientation of the polarizers, along with theoretical curves, and how the act of ``pasting together'' two previously distinguishable paths can introduce a new relative phase between them.

Using a two-photon interferometer, the time delay for a photon to tunnel across a barrier consisting of a 1.1-μm-thick 1D photonic band-gap material is measured, consistent with the group delay («phase time»), but not with the semiclassical time.
