Local realism is the worldview in which physical properties of objects exist independently of measurement and where physical influences cannot travel faster than the speed of light. Bell's theorem states that this worldview is incompatible with the predictions of quantum mechanics, as is expressed in Bell's inequalities. Previous experiments convincingly supported the quantum predictions. Yet, every experiment requires assumptions that provide loopholes for a local realist explanation. Here, we… 
A significant-loophole-free test of Bell's theorem with entangled photons
John Bell’s theorem of 1964 states that local elements of physical reality, existing independent of measurement, are inconsistent with the predictions of quantum mechanics (Bell, J. S. (1964),
A Rigorous Test of Bell’s Inequality and Quantum Teleportation Employing Single Atoms
In 1935, Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen pointed at contradictions between quantum mechanics and classical theories which obey the principles of realism (physical properties exist without observation)
Event-Ready Bell Test Using Entangled Atoms Simultaneously Closing Detection and Locality Loopholes.
TLDR
A statistically significant, event-ready Bell test based on combining heralded entanglement of atoms separated by 398 m with fast and efficient measurements of the atomic spin states closing essential loopholes to refute the hypothesis of local realism with a significance level P<2.57×10^{-9}.
Quantum Foundations with Astronomical Photons
Bell’s inequalities impose an upper limit on correlations between measurements of two-photon states under the assumption that the photons play by a set of local rules rather than by quantum
Comment on "Significant-Loophole-Free Test of Bell's Theorem with Entangled Photons"
In a recent article Giustina et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 115, 250401 (2015)] report on an advanced Bell experiment, simultaneously closing loopholes for local hidden-variable theories. The authors claim
Proposal to Test a Transient Deviation from Quantum Mechanics’ Predictions for Bell’s Experiment
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the high quantum correlations develop only after a time longer than L/c has elapsed, where L is the spread of the entangled state and c is the velocity of light, and a simple hidden variables model following this hypothesis is described.
Simulation of the Bell inequality violation based on quantum steering concept
TLDR
By use of a model of polarizers that obeys the Malus’ law and quantum steering concept, i.e. superluminal influence of the states of entangled pairs to each other, simulation of phenomena is presented and the result completely agrees with prediction of quantum mechanics.
Optomechanical Bell Test.
TLDR
Here, light-matter entanglement is created between the vibrational motion of two silicon optomechanical oscillators, each comprising approx.
Cosmic Bell Test: Measurement Settings from Milky Way Stars.
TLDR
In tests with polarization-entangled photons, measurement settings were chosen using real-time observations of Milky Way stars while simultaneously ensuring locality, pushing back by ∼600  years the most recent time by which any local-realist influences could have engineered the observed Bell violation.
Tackling Loopholes in Experimental Tests of Bell's Inequality
Bell's inequality sets a strict threshold for how strongly correlated the outcomes of measurements on two or more particles can be, if the outcomes of each measurement are independent of actions

Loophole-free Bell inequality violation using electron spins separated by 1.3 kilometres
TLDR
The data imply statistically significant rejection of the local-realist null hypothesis and could be used for testing less-conventional theories, and for implementing device-independent quantum-secure communication and randomness certification.
Experimental violation of a Bell's inequality with efficient detection
TLDR
Here, correlations in the classical properties of massive entangled particles (9Be+ ions): these correlations violate a form of Bell's inequality, and the high detection efficiency of the apparatus eliminates the so-called ‘detection’ loophole.
Bell-inequality violation with entangled photons, free of the coincidence-time loophole
In a local realist model, physical properties are defined prior to and independent of measurement and no physical influence can propagate faster than the speed of light. Proper experimental violation
Bell violation using entangled photons without the fair-sampling assumption
TLDR
This experiment makes the photon the first physical system for which each of the main loopholes has been closed, albeit in different experiments, and uses the Eberhard form of Bell’s inequality, which allows a lower collection efficiency than other forms.
Violation of local realism with freedom of choice
TLDR
This paper presents an experiment that violates Bell’s inequality while simultaneously closing the locality loophole and addressing the freedom-of-choice loophole, also closing the latter within a reasonable set of assumptions.
Detection-loophole-free test of quantum nonlocality, and applications.
TLDR
A source of entangled photons is presented that violates a Bell inequality free of the "fair-sampling" assumption, and is used to generate "device-independent" private quantum random numbers at rates over 4 orders of magnitude beyond previous experiments.
Loopholes in Bell inequality tests of local realism
Bell inequalities are intended to show that local realist theories cannot describe the world. A local realist theory is one where physical properties are defined prior to and independent of
Violation of Bell's inequality in Josephson phase qubits
TLDR
This experiment uses a pair of Josephson phase qubits acting as spin-1/2 particles, and shows that the qubits can be entangled and measured so as to violate the Clauser–Horne–Shimony–Holt (CHSH) version of the Bell inequality.
Testing Bell's inequality with cosmic photons: closing the setting-independence loophole.
TLDR
By setting the detectors using pairs of quasars or patches of the cosmic microwave background, observed violations of Bell's inequality would require any such coordination to have existed for billions of years-an improvement of 20 orders of magnitude.
Time-resolved measurement of Bell inequalities and the coincidence loophole
We report an Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen-Bohm experiment with a pulsed source of entangled pairs of photons, recording the time of arrival of the pulses and of the detection of each single photon. This
