    I am posting a new question rather than adding it to existing threads, because the system says I have insufficient privileges to do that.

    What makes you think such a document even exists? That might help track it down.

    True. You have a point there. I should have said, is there a synopsis / summary /detailed discussion of the the key experiments reported in the thesis, so that one can get all the important concepts and information without having to read the German version.

    It seems as if this is a publication related to the topic of the thesis:

    Brillouin scattering and dynamical diffraction of entangled photon pairs
    Birgit Dopfer, Paul G. Kwiat, Harald Weinfurter, Anton Zeilinger, and Michael A. Horne
    Phys. Rev. A 52, R2531(R) – Published 1 October 1995
