Maximum violation of Bell's Inequalities?

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Can someone please tell me(and in simple terms-like in percentages), what the maximal violations of Bell's inequality has been recorded at in actual experiments and in an ideal scenario? Thank you.

One clarification: By "ideal", do you mean an experiment that most closely resembles the idealized model Bell analyzed in his original paper (two spin-1/2 particles in the singlet state) or those experiments that most effectively close as many loopholes as possible?

I mean it in the sense that as many loopholes are closed as possible.

This one, from 2015: https://arxiv.org/abs/1508.05949 was discussed in several threads here when it first appeared.
Using the CHSH form of the inequality, 2.42 against the classical limit of 2.0

(the link is to a preprint -as far as I know the final publication is behind a paywall)

So is 2.42 the maximum level of violation ?

The theoretical maximum possible in quantum theory in that situation is given by Tsirelson's bound.

The theoretical maximum possible in quantum theory in other situations has interesting issues including Tsirelson's problem, which is related to MIP* = RE, on which progress seems to have been made recently.

For CHSH how large is the violation given by Tsirelson's bound? So by what margin would it theoretically be larger than 2 according to this bound?

It’s just about the first thing in the Wikipedia article @atyy linked: ##2\sqrt{2}##.
