Homework Help: Two particle interference (entanglement)

  1. Oct 30, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A source emits pairs of particles "back to back", 50% into directions a1 and b1, 50 % into directions a2 and b2, where the choice between a1+b1 and a2+b2 is fundamentally undetermined.

    Insert Diagram A

    suppose that directions a1 and a2 are combined on a 50/50 beam splitter(equal path lengths)

    Insert Diagram B

    what percentage of the particles emitted to the left will be detected in each detector?
