"Path (or single particle)" Superposition Vs Entanglement Superposition(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"Path" superposition

1. Single photon/particle.....say going through a double slit

Entanglement superposition

1. Creation of two entangled photons

Path superposition

- 1 particle....superposition of multiple paths

- one (particle) to many (paths)

Entanglement superposition

- two particles described by the same wavefunction

- many (particles) to one (wavefunction)

also "paths" can interfere, entangled particles don't interfere

Is entanglement really superposition or complimentary to superposition?
