Photon Entanglement Question(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Polarize a string of photons vertically. Make the polarized photons into two streams of vertically polarized entangled photon pares. One photon of each pare will go to point A and the other will go to point B. All photons that arrive at point A will encounter a polarizer filter set at 45 degrees clockwise with a photon detector after the filter. The photons arriving at point B will have a small longer path length with will delay the photon reaching the planarization filter by a few microseconds. The photons arriving at point B will be divided into two streams, where half will encounter a polarizer filter 45 degrees clockwise and the other half will encounter a polarizer filter 45 degrees counterclockwise. A photon detector will follow each polarizer filter. What will the statistical results be?
