On mechanisms that enforce complementarity Academic Article uri icon


  • In a recent publication Luis and Snchez-Soto arrive at the conclusion that complementarity is universally enforced by random classical phase kicks. We disagree. One could just as well argue that quantum entanglement is the universal mechanism. Both claims of universality are unjustified, however. 2000 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
