Quantum Effects Brought to Light

    "Quantum Effects Brought to Light"

    Have had this article for a while now - http://www.nature.com/news/2011/110428/full/news.2011.252.html - but I was wondering why you wouldn't expect Bell's inequality to be violated had the entanglement been broken before amplification. The results, prior to amplification, and when we see which polarisation the field of photons are in, are the same - so what is different about knowing the result before amplification and after, where after amplification you wouldn't expect the inequality to be violated.

    Stupid boy has realised why this is so, after much thinking. Man, I can be an idiot sometimes.
