Hello everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've got a quick question... Given two entangled photons, going through a polarization filter with relative angle a, what is the correlation between the two "answers" (whether the photon is blocked or let through)?

I believe it's either cos(a) or cos^2(a), but I'm not sure which of the two.

If we do the test in sequence, with the same photon, then the correlation is cos^2(a), is that correct?

Thanks in advance
