David Kaiser, IF 2012 speaker, plans to collaborate with Anton Zeilinger to close an important loophole in John Stewart Bell's quantum entanglement theory. In his article, Bell demonstrated that quantum theory requires entanglement; the strange connectedness is an inescapable feature of the equations. But Bell’s proof didn’t show that nature behaved that way, only that physicists’ equations did. The question remained: Does quantum entanglement occur in the world?
Read this NYT article to learn more about Kaiser's plan to test the theory and aim to close the loophole 50 years after Bell's paper was first published.
