Quantum eraser: A proposed photon correlation experiment concerning observation and "delayed choice" in quantum mechanics Academic Article uri icon


  • We propose and analyze an experiment designed to probe the extent to which information accessible to an observer and the "eraser" of this information affects measured results. The proposed experiment could also be operated in a "delayed-choice" mode. 1982 The American Physical Society.
