Paper Abstract

Experimental measurements of entangled photons have enabled effective probing of foundational principles of physical law, Quantum Mechanics (QM) in particular. When it was noted that QM is non-local and precludes certain real properties, change in the description of basic phenomena was required. Bell's Inequality work clarified this conflict with Local-Realistic descriptions but left open whether locality, realism, or both should be abandoned. More recent investigations consider models that maintain forms of non-local realism as alternatives to QM. Problems with those are illustrated here, and support a non-local QM description of entangled photons having non-determinate properties.
