Paper Abstract

Detecting non-locality requires almost ideal experimental conditions - ideal sources for entangled photon pairs and ideal detectors. Deviations from this ideal situation may critically hamper interpretations of experiments attempting to prove non-locality. Of two major known loopholes, the detector loophole is not yet unequivocally closed. Now another loophole emerges: When in such experiments down converting crystals with lasers as primary sources are used, exceeding threshold values in the Bell inequalities, i.e. their violation, can be caused by so far not fully recognized problems in the generation and detection of photon pairs. Taken together, nonlocality is still not yet unequivocally proven.
