Is Quantum Entanglement an Illusion?

Postby SEKI » Sat Mar 03, 2018 1:03 pm

In a Bell test experiment, a source produces a pair of particles, one is sent to one location, and the other is sent to another location. A measurement of particle spin/polarization is performed at a specific angle at each location.

The experimental fact of violation of Bell's inequality has been explained by the mysterious concept of quantum entanglement so far.

Let's assume that the source is located at the origin of Cartesian coordinate system. In some experimental settings, each of emitted paired particles is detected at the same time. In this case, a detection of a particle can never affect the other detection. So, in this context, entanglement is suspected to be an illusion, whether emitted paired particles are massless or massive.

Am I wrong?
