Paper Abstract

The Afshar experiment is a relatively simple two-slit experiment with results that show a discrepancy with the predictions of Bohr's Principle of Complementarity. We report on the results of a calculation using a simpler but equivalent set-up called the modified Afshar experiment. Numerical results are in agreement with the experimental measurements performed on the Afshar experiment set-up. Calculations show that the level of which-way information and visibility in the Afshar experiment is higher than originally estimated.
