Effect of obstruction on Quantum Entanglement

  1. Dec 25, 2012 #1
    We know that single particle interference is effected by certain kinds of obstruction.

    Is there any effect of Obstruction when placed between two entangled particles?

    Single particle interference and quantum entanglement may not have that much in common, however just wanted to check.

    What do you mean with "placed between two entangled particles"?
    You can have and use entangled particles with an arbitrary amount of matter between them, it does not... matter.

    Thanks mfb.

    Matter does not matter in case of quantum entanglement.
    Matter does matter in case of single particle interference.

    Interesting - two different modes of influence
