Creating path entanglement and violating Bell inequalities by independent photon sources Academic Article uri icon


  • We demonstrate a novel approach of violating position-dependent Bell inequalities by photons emitted via independent single photon sources in free space. We trace this violation back to path entanglement created a posteriori by the selection of modes due to the process of detection. 2010 Elsevier B.V.
