Classical optical fields "violate" Bell-CHSH

Postby FrediFizzx » Wed Aug 19, 2015 3:25 pm

As reported recently in another thread, the Qian, et al, experiment was finally published in June.
"Shifting the quantum-classical boundary: theory and experiment for statistically classical optical fields"

arXiv links,

http://arxiv.org/abs/1406.3338

Are there any flaws in this experiment other than them blaming it on "classical entanglement"? :- )

The authors thank helpful discussion(s) with A. Aspect. If true, that gives them some further credibility (I no longer trust statements from "scientists" without proof).

Yes, I was the guest who reported it, I'm a layman who has been following for the last couple of months this interesting Bell debate. I also opened a thread about a Bell proof, I hope somebody answers there.
