How can you set up an entanglement experiment?

  1. May 23, 2013 #1
    Is it possible to set up an in house entanglement experiment? Would you need to carry out the experiment in a lab and is it costly?

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to PF;
    You could probably do some of the photon ones at home but it would be expensive.
    Off the top of my head - about as expensive as a new car?

    There is nothing particularly special about a physics lab - it's just someone's basement normally.
    What you have basically asked is what it would cost to set up a minimal entanglement lab ;)

    I have an at home entanglement experiment every couple of weeks involving a couple of 100ft extension cords.

    ... good point: I have one involving heartstrings ... those can be very expensive indeed, and often require specialized equipment.
