Quantum entanglement may appear to be closer to science fiction than anything in our physical reality. But according to the laws of quantum mechanics—a branch of physics that describes the world at the scale of atoms and subatomic particles—quantum entanglement, which Einstein once skeptically viewed as "spooky action at a distance," is, in fact, real.

Imagine two specks of dust at opposite ends of the universe, separated by several billion light years. Quantum theory predicts that, regardless of the vast distance separating them, these two particles can be entangled. That is, any measurement made on one will instantaneously convey information about the outcome of a future measurement on its partner. In that case, the outcomes of measurements on each member of the pair can become highly correlated.

If, instead, the universe behaves as Einstein imagined it should—with particles having their own, definite properties prior to measurement, and with local causes only capable of yielding local effects—then there should be an upper limit to the degree to which measurements on each member of the pair of particles could be correlated. Physicist John Bell quantified that upper limit, now known as "Bell's inequality," more than 50 years ago.

In numerous previous experiments, physicists have observed correlations between particles in excess of the limit set by Bell's inequality, which suggests that they are indeed entangled, just as predicted by . But each such test has been subject to various "loopholes," scenarios that might account for the observed correlations even if the world were not governed by .

Now, physicists from MIT, the University of Vienna, and elsewhere have addressed a loophole in tests of Bell's inequality, known as the freedom-of-choice loophole, and have presented a strong demonstration of even when the vulnerability to this loophole is significantly restricted.

"The real estate left over for the skeptics of quantum mechanics has shrunk considerably," says David Kaiser, the Germeshausen Professor of the History of Science and professor of physics at MIT. "We haven't gotten rid of it, but we've shrunk it down by 16 orders of magnitude."

A research team including Kaiser; Alan Guth, the Victor F. Weisskopf Professor of Physics at MIT; Andrew Friedman, an MIT research associate; and colleagues from
the University of Vienna and elsewhere has published its results today in the journal Physical Review Letters.

Closing the door on quantum alternatives

The freedom-of-choice loophole refers to the idea that experimenters have total freedom in choosing their experimental setup, from the types of particles to entangle, to the measurements they choose to make on those particles. But what if there were some other factors or hidden variables correlated with the experimental setup, making the results appear to be quantumly entangled, when in fact they were the result of some nonquantum mechanism?

Physicists have attempted to address this loophole with extremely controlled experiments, in which they produce a pair of entangled photons from a single source, then send the photons to two different detectors and measure properties of each photon to determine their degree of correlation, or entanglement. To rule out the possibility that hidden variables may have influenced the results, researchers have used random number generators at each detector to decide what property of each photon to measure, in the split second between when the photon leaves the source and arrives at the detector.

But there is a chance, however slight, that hidden variables, or nonquantum influences, may affect a random number generator before it relays its split-second decision to the photon detector.

"At the heart of quantum entanglement is the high degree of correlations in the outcomes of measurements on these pairs [of particles]," Kaiser says. "But what if a skeptic or critic insisted these correlations weren't due to these particles acting in a fully quantum mechanical way? We want to address whether there is any other way that those correlations could have snuck in without our having noticed."

"Stars aligned"

In 2014, Kaiser, Friedman, and their colleague Jason Gallicchio (now a professor at Harvey Mudd College) proposed an experiment to use ancient photons from astronomical sources such as stars or quasars as "cosmic setting generators," rather than on Earth, to determine the measurements to be made on each entangled photon. Such cosmic light would be arriving at Earth from objects that are very far away—anywhere from dozens to billions of light years away. Thus, if some hidden variables were to interfere with the randomness of the choice of measurements, they would have had to have set those changes in motion before the time the light left the cosmic source, long before the experiment on Earth was conducted.

In this new paper, the researchers have demonstrated their idea experimentally for the first time. The team, including Professor Anton Zeilinger and his group at the

University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences, set up a source to produce highly entangled pairs of photons on the roof of a university laboratory in Vienna. In each experimental run, they shot the entangled photons out in opposite directions, toward detectors located in buildings several city blocks away—the Austrian National Bank and a second university building.

The researchers also set up telescopes at both detector sites and trained them on stars, the closest of which is about 600 light years away, which they had previously determined would send sufficient photons, or starlight, in their direction.

"On those nights, the stars aligned," Friedman says. "And with bright stars like these, the number of photons coming in can be like a firehose. So we have these very fast detectors that can register detections of cosmic photons on subnanosecond timescales."

"Out of whack" with Einstein

In the few microseconds before an entangled photon arrived at a detector, the researchers used each telescope to rapidly measure a property of an incoming stellar photon—in this case, whether its wavelength was redder or bluer than a particular reference wavelength. They then used this random property of the stellar photon, generated 600 years ago by its star, to determine what property of the incoming entangled photons to measure. In this case, red stellar photons signaled a detector to measure an entangled photon's polarization in a particular direction. A blue stellar photon would set the device to measure the polarization of the entangled particle along a different direction.

The team conducted two experiments, with each experimental run lasting only three minutes. In each case, the researchers measured about 100,000 pairs of . They found that the polarization measurements of the photon pairs were highly correlated, well in excess of the bound set by Bell's inequality, in a way that is most easily explained by quantum mechanics.

"We find answers consistent with quantum mechanics to an enormously strong degree, and enormously out of whack with an Einstein-like prediction," Kaiser says.

The results represent improvements by 16 orders of magnitude over previous efforts to address the freedom-of-choice loophole.

"All previous experiments could have been subject to this weird loophole to account for the results microseconds before each experiment, versus our 600 years," Kaiser says. "So it's a difference of a millionth of a second versus 600 years' worth of seconds—16 orders of magnitude."

"This experiment pushes back the latest time at which the conspiracy could have started," Guth adds. "We're saying, in order for some crazy mechanism to simulate
quantum mechanics in our experiment, that mechanism had to have been in place 600 years ago to plan for our doing the experiment here today, and to have sent photons of just the right messages to end up reproducing the results of quantum mechanics. So it's very far-fetched."

There is also a second, equally far-fetched possibility, says Michael Hall, a senior research fellow at Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia.

"When photons from the distant stars reach the devices that determine the measurement settings, it is possible that these devices act in some way to change the colors of the photons, in a way that is correlated with the laser producing the entanglement," says Hall, who was not involved in the work. "This would only require a 10-microsecond-old conspiracy between the devices and the laser. However, the idea that photons don't show their 'true colors' when detected would overturn all observational astronomy and basic electromagnetism."

Those starlight photons were not the entangled photons; they were merely used to trigger the measurement-property 'choice' via their detected blue/red characteristics. The actual entangled photons came from the lab-source, and it is THESE LAB photons' 'property' which is being measured/correlated according to what property was to be measured as determined by the starlight wavelength (blue/red). The starlight was merely a 'remote choice' device for the purposes of removing the choice from local situation when measuring the lab-sourced entangled photons. :)

Yes, that same thing had occurred to me also. Moreover, I am still questioning the whole basis for the stochastic nature for determining the 'entanglement' aspect itself in any particular Bell experiment. By that, I mean, that IF entanglement was 'true', then ALL the photon-runs should BE correlated 100%. The use of percentages makes the whole question/conclusion meaningless and open to chance/systemic/methodology etc 'artifacts/conclusions'; since the entangled nature is either present or not. If it IS present in one 'run' then it should be present in ALL 'runs', and the stats should be 100% not the usual percentages depended upon as 'indicating' true overall. If you get my drift?

Anyhow, cheers. :)

The difficulty is in detecting them with 100% certainty. There's noise in the system that interferes with the entangled photons, and you can't reasonably detect which photon was a pair to which because of uncertainties in timing and distance.

And fundamentally, when you measure something like the spin of a photon, it's not a property that is always going to be the same. If you put a photon in a box, it's not necessarily in there but just probably in there, likewise if you deliberately set the spin up and shoot the photon at a detector, it doesn't necessarily arrive there spin up - it's just very likely.

So as well in the correlation, even if the pair IS entangled they do not necessarily always end up measuring that way.

Yes, agreed. That makes it even more 'all over the place' insofar as stochastic methods/conclusions 'artifacts' go. Not only is the 'uncertainty factor affecting a certain percentage of 'runs', but also the actual property itself may not be 'showing' at point of measurements due to 'temporal' oscillations/uncertainties in 'hits'. IOW, naive dependence on simplistic statistical methodologies/analyses etc makes the whole exercise 'design' insufficient to 'handle' ALL relevant factors. :)

Well, to put it in simple terms: an individual photon may do as it well pleases. A hundred million photons are a hundred million times less likely to do so.

A systemic error would change from experiment to experiment, and a random error averages out. Rather, the choice loophole is about whether there exists a side channel through which the information about the entangled particles can travel so that regardless of the experiment it always gives the right answer. After all, that information would reach the experiment just as fast if not faster than the photons which are slowed down by the optical fiber.

Hence the use of old starlight to choose how the experiment is performed to rule out side channel interference.

Not finding any reference to percentages in the arxiv reference so I guess your question is just hypothetical. But if there were percentages you could compare the run with an identical run except using a local random number generator. Seems unfortunate.

Hi Eikka. :)

That is what I mean by naive/simplistic assumptions/methodologies being built-into such QM measurement/conclusion exercises. Recall the similar problems which Bicep2/Planck etc cosmological 'exercises' recently exposed in their own methodologies due to the complex nature of both known/unknown effects previously unsuspected/discarded when culling/discarding data which did not 'fit'.

Consider: The calculations in QM are all based on probability (stochastic); but the dataset is NOT 'complete' because of same uncertainties/noise you alluded to; ALSO because we don't know what instances were MISSED and so did not form part of the dataset/calculation at all.

IF we could include all the missed/unknown data, then maybe it would come to approx. 50-50...whence NO conclusion could be drawn re 'entanglement' bias in the dataset/setup/methodology/assumptions etc.

Such stats/exercises, subject to noise/uncertainty and missing/unknown data etc, are too naive/simplistic.

Hi RNP, Seeker2 (and again, Eikka). :)

Please see, from my earlier response to KelDude, that I understood perfectly how/why the remotely emitted star photons was used as parameter-choice determinant for measurement of lab photons.

PS: RNP, Seeker2, please also see my post to Eikka; it clarifies the issues BEYOND the naive/simplistic assumptions/methodologies etc already known/used. I refer to things which current QM 'Bell' setups/experiments/methodlogies etc do NOT actually treat at all (even though all 'assume' they do, even when, as I pointed out, they do not)....and hence the results/concusions are not strictly based on complete dataset (because of discarded/unknown instances not even being included properly in the 'probability' stats/methodologies/weightings/fittings etc).

That's all I wanted to point out. I leave you to ponder implications of excluded-by-design (data/methodologies etc) of the unknowns/missed instances which would have otherwise affected results. :)

You clearly do not understand Bell's theorem and it's implications.

The theorem is derived from purely *classical* considerations. However, the classical inequalities it produces are VIOLATED by quantum systems. This has been demonstrated experimentally too many times to count. In other words, quantum systems CAN NOT be described by simple classical probabilities as you are trying to suggest.

In other words, your suggestion of "naive/simplistic assumptions/methodologies being built-into such QM measurement/conclusion exercises" is completely unfounded, and has been experimental refuted countless times.

I strongly suggest you learn a little about quantum mechanics before you start trying to sound authoritative.

Hi RNP. :)

Mate, you missed the subtle distinction between BELL-like exercises and the usual QM calculations/measurements methodologies and aims. The former is not a QM setup at all, but a classical setup in which some of the actual 'incidents' may be missed/discarded etc BY the very exercise/methodlogy/assumptions going into the Bell exercise/analysis etc. As for the latter, I am NOT addressing the QM approach to QM systems/probabilities which are inescapable because it isn't a classical exercise at all. The Bell exercise is subject to what I pointed out in classical terms; not involving the QM approach at all. Perhaps the distinction is too subtle for you to grasp on the first try; which leads you to assume things about what I meant etc which I didn't mean at all but you 'read' into it...hence your reply based on your 'reading bias' which leads you to miss my point? In any case, that is all I have to say at this juncture. I leave you/others to ponder at your own pace. :)

Since its 1964 derivation, Bell's theorem has been scrutinized by professional scientists. Are we to believe that YOU have seen something they have missed? Let's see.

First, it had to be explained to you above that Bell's theorem applies to arbitrary detector orientations and thus 100% correlation is NOT generally expected. Then you say that:
["BELL-like exercises"] are a classical setup in which some of the actual 'incidents' may be missed/discarded etc BY the very exercise/methodlogy/assumptions going into the Bell exercise/analysis

This is nonsense too. There are no "discarded incidents" in a "BELL-like exercise" and "missed" incidents are not incidents at all. Give an example of what you mean if you think you know better.
I leave you/others to ponder at your own pace.

BICEP2 required delicate analysis, ONE aspect of which was found to have had problems. However, the authors noted the potential difficulty in the ABSTRACT of the paper, so the issue was quickly resolved. The claim that YOU saw problems that the authors did not is PURE fabrication.

Your claims about inflation are also fiction. Inflation has always been a contentious theory, with both believers and non-believers. The fact that you found, and repeatedly misrepresented, a non-believer proves NOTHING except that you do not understand the scientific method.

I agree with RNP; no-one with any nouse/integrity would take the corrupted feedback ratings here seriously, so I don't; which is why I don't vote therein. I leave the malicious trolls/ignoramuses to keep demonstrating their hypocrisy and stupidity for all to see. And since you (Ghost) and your Ira/Stumpy pals are the most active and persistently hypocritical "The Three Amigos" of the 'irrelevant Internet noise' idiots here and in the feedback pages, the Forum only needs to sit back and just watch your bot-voting 'gang' damn yourselves by your own words/actions.

Grow up; stick to the topic. :)

Stumpy boasted about how to stalk people using the Internet. You and Ghost and he have stalked people here too. My name and address etc were posted by Stumpy a number of times, I haven't (because, as you say, I am not stupid. :))

Now that Stumpy the stalker has posted my personal details against site rules, you and Ghost have also jumped on his stalking bandwagon, unconscionably. But you don't divulge your own names so we can all see who is who whenever you stalk, insult and troll your victims. Only cowards and hypocrites, as well as stupid trolls, name their victims while themselves being too ashamed to name themselves. Are you ashamed of your own family name? Is that why you stalk anonymously? That behavior/hypocrisy do anything except compound your own shame. The Forum can see who is genuine poster on a science site, and who is just another gang of irrelevant noise internet stalkers and trolls.

Never mind, you have been so wrong, lied about so many things/people while you/your pals stalk/troll here and elsewhere, that the Forum has become accustomed to your stupidity, dishonesty and hypocrisy. Nothing new.

Now, back to the point:

You, Stumpy and Ghost have (against site rules) used others' full name (I never posted it here). So, let's level the field; tell us your full names since you have no scruples about stalking and using my full name in open forum.

<4> Volumetrication Flaw
These Realisations occur because fundamental relativities are infinitesimally unsettled (evidence PI etc.). This inherent flaw in the VSmatrix/Space processes means that volumetrication of direction is incomplete. Hence, flaw-related 'remainder' consequences will arise wherever the natural geometrical/mathematical operations in the 3-D Space substrate cannot execute to completion, and so fail to balance infinitesimally at all times and all places each and every intersection-point location for all the infinite totality of Direction lines-of-coincidence. In short, direction-volumetrication processes fail to close perfectly the omni-directional spheres (radial spread of direction lines-of-coincidence) effectively defining the fundamental geometrical/mathematical relativities among the totality of absolute points in the primary-vacuum Space substrate.


How you like me now Cher?

<5>The mRDloop Quantum Of Reality
The ongoing consequence of this failure to close absolute-point 'spheres' in VSmatrix is an unceasing generation of looped (activated) leftover line-bits (segments/quantums) of 'vector' Direction (Impetus-Energy).This fault-related looping (Realisation) changes a VSmatrix Space point's contextual (effectiveness) status: from absolute (reality ineffective) omnipolar-point Space 'location', to relative (reality effective) dipolar-loop Spacetime event. That is, from an infinitesimal segment of an open (passive) line in primary (ground state) vacuum Space context, to a minimal Realised Direction loop (mRDloop) quantum of closed (active) line in secondary (excited state) vacuum Spacetime context. In effect, mRDloops are the smallest physically-effective bits in RDmedium dynamics (next), as all VSmatrix/Space perturbations below mRDlooping threshold do not reach status-change ciriticality,

Naturally, a bot-voting ignoramus who admits to not comprehending scientific/logical subtleties/complexities wouldn't understand this; but let's give it a try anyway, just in case his bot-brain wakes up to reality for a minute:

New ideas sometimes require re-phrasing of old terminologies/coining of new terminology. This is what has happened in science throughout history. But you, a self-admitted Ira bot-voting trolling nitwit, haven't yet twigged to that fact.

Moreover, any subject-savvy reader would recognize that NEW and COMPLETE theory's explanatory terminology has corresponding counterparts in the current Quantum/cosmological orthodoxy terminology.....and that, if they are really perspicacious, they will further see that in the REALITY-based TOE context, my rephrasing/coining of terminology is more appropriate and consistent than in any current 'partial' theories extant, be they mainstream or other.

Please stop your irrelevant noise. If you can't discuss the actual science topic, then just observe the discussions and learn. All else is sheer distraction at a time when humanity needs all the original/better ideas and co-operative advancement in science and humanity discourse. Don't be a drag on objective discourse/understanding by carrying on personal feuds. Stop addressing your posts in so juvenile and antagonistic way. Be polite, fairminded, and stick to the science topic not the person/source (you now know what can happen when one outsources their thinking and beliefs to other person/source). Just address the topic; make your own arguments politely and without malice or personal ego-tripping/bot-voting, stalking, trolling tactics which only bring shame on all science/humanity respecting principles and goals.

You do realize that your votes are completely irrelevant, and only serve to convince anybody that cares to look that you are dishonest and a charlatan.

You should note that tracing your activity with your sock puppets is easy - the same horde down voting people that disagree with you and up voting your posts in at least three articles that I can find in the last few months.

Hi RNP. :)

Is THIS how easy it is for the Stumpy liar/troll gang to manipulate your 'beliefs'? If you checked with the PO admin/mods you'd probably find I am one of the very few who does NOT employ sockpuppet armies. Heck, I don't even vote in the feedback pages at all! You KNOW this; yet you prefer to 'believe' what you WANT to believe because you want to suck up to the troll gang who is sabotaging/framing/bot-voting and sock-puppeting to beat all heck?

What's WRONG with your mind, mate, that you would so readily believe UNTRUTHS about me rather than admit the evidence that confirms ME to be the most independent, objective, honest researcher/commenter here?

I was similarly sabotaged, trolled and lied about over at Sciforums, most recently by "paddoby" and the gang he ran with there. But NOW the admin/mods have FINALLY realized that it was paddoboy and that gang (included Stumpy) that were the trolls and sockpuppeteers that got victims banned.

No, there is another surprise: that the usual bot-voting gang is now whining about it! Seems a bit lame, doesn't it? Hypocritical, even, for trolling/bot-voting gang to complain when someone else plays them at their own game. Pathetic, really. It only proves how these twerps think they are the only ones with the right to 'play' games which sabotage feedback and discussions. Pathetic bullies/losers like that are always the first to cry 'mummy' when they are confronted with the same tactics they employ against their helpless victims. Cowards and bullies are ruining the forums, and they exploit naive 'believers' to either join their gangs or become victims of same.

Be brave. Resist these bot-voting trolling gangs. Think, act for yourselves, always. Good luck and good thinking. :)
