    Aspect et al, circa 1981, was the early watershed. This included the feature that the polarization settings were changed midflight and showed about 5 standard deviations of confidence. The next biggie was Weihs et al, 1998, which improved substantially on the strict localization of Alice and Bob by separating them by over 2 kilometers.

    Aspect wrote on the progress a few years back in this article:

    A good summary of the state of Bell tests and theory development is here (106 pages, 505 references, as of 2007):
