The measurement process plays an awkward role in quantum mechanics, because measurement forces a system to ‘choose’ between possible outcomes in a fundamentally unpredictable manner. Therefore, hidden classical processes have been considered as possibly predetermining measurement outcomes while preserving their statistical distributions. However, a quantitative measure that can distinguish classically determined correlations from stronger quantum correlations exists in the form of the Bell… 
Characterizing entanglement of an artificial atom and a cavity cat state with Bell's inequality
This work uses the Clauser–Horne–Shimony–Holt formulation of a Bell test to characterize entanglement between an artificial atom and a cat state, or a Bell-cat, and detects correlations that surpass the classical maximum of the Bell inequality.
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),
