1 Bell violation with entangled photons and without the fair-sampling assumption Foundations of Physics 2013 LMU Munich, Germany 30 July 2013 Johannes Kofler Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ) Garching / Munich, Germany

2 Overview Assumptions in Bells theorem Realism Locality Freedom of choice Closing loopholes Locality Freedom of choice Fair sampling Conclusion and outlook

3 Quantum mechanics and hidden variables Bohr and Einstein, Kopenhagen interpretation (Bohr, Heisenberg) 1932von Neumanns (wrong) proof of non-possibility of hidden variables 1935Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox 1952De Broglie-Bohm (nonlocal) hidden variable theory 1964Bells theorem on local hidden variables 1972First successful Bell test (Freedman & Clauser) History

4 Local realism Realism:physical properties are (probabilistically) defined prior to and independent of measurement Locality:no physical influence can propagate faster than the speed of light External world Passive observers Classical world view:

5 Realism: Hidden variables determine global prob. distrib.: p(A a 1 b 1, A a 1 b 2, A a 2 b 1,…|λ) Locality: (OI)Outcome independence:p(A|a,b,B,λ) = p(A|a,b,λ)& vice versa for B (SI)Setting independence:p(A|a,b,λ) = p(A|a,λ) & vice versa for B Freedom of choice:p(a,b|λ) = p(a,b) p(λ|a,b) = p(λ) λ Bells Assumptions Bells assumptions 1 J. F. Clauser and A. Shimony, Rep. Prog. Phys. 41, 1881 (1978) 3 J. S. Bell, Speakable and Unspeakable in Quantum Mechanics, p. 243 (2004) J. S. Bell, Physics 1, 195 (1964)

6 Realism + Locality + Freedom of choice Bells inequality CHSH form 1 : S exp := E(a 1,b 2 ) + E(a 2,b 1 ) + E(a 2,b 1 ) – E(a 2,b 2 ) 2 Original Bell paper 2 implicitly assumed freedom of choice: A(a,b,B,λ)A(a,b,B,λ) locality (λ|a,b) A(a,λ) B(b,λ) – (λ|a,c) A(a,λ) B(c,λ) freedom of choice explicitly: implicitly: Bells Assumptions Bells theorem 1 J.

7 Loopholes Why important? - quantum foundations - security of entanglement-based quantum cryptography Three main loopholes: Locality loophole hidden communication between the parties closed for photons (1982 1, ) Freedom-of-choice loophole settings are correlated with hidden variables closed for photons ( ) Fair-sampling loophole measured subensemble is not representative closed for atoms ( ), superconducting qubits ( ) and for photons ( ) 1 A.

10 Fair-sampling loophole Unfair sampling:detection efficiency could be low and setting-dependent 1 A = A (, ), B = B (, ) Local realistic model 2 : 1 P. M. Pearle, PRD 2, 1418 (1970) 2 N.

Kurtsiefer, PRL 107, (2011) Efficiency is not optional in security-related tasks (device-independent quantum cryptography): faked Bell violations 3 Reproduces the quantum predictions and has correct ratio of singles, coincidences and no clicks at all

11 Eberhard inequality CHSH inequality requires tot > 82.8 % 1 (max. entangled states) Eberhard 2 (CH 3 ) inequality requires tot > 66.7 %(non-max. ent. states) no fair-sampling assumption no requirement to measure tot no post-selection or normalization only one detector per side 1 A.

Zeilinger, arXiv: [quant-ph] (2013) Strong drop of production rate (intensity) for 2 2 could lead to fake violation production rate loophole Comparison of all singles counts: Drifts slightly larger than purely statistical Normalization with respect to production rate: J – loophole closed in the experiment

17 Conclusion and outlook Loopholes important for quantum foundations & quantum cryptography Locality (1982/98) and freedom-of-choice loophole (2010) closed for photons Fair-sampling loophole [already closed for atoms (2001) and superconducting qubits (2009)] now closed for photons Photons: first system for which each of the three major loopholes has been closed, albeit in separate experiments For a loophole-free experiment: fast random number generators, precise timing, efficiency gains to compensate propagation losses due to increased distance Endgame for local realism has begun
