On the measurement by dichotomic analysers of the polarization correlation of optical photons emitted in atomic cascade

  • V. A. Rapisarda


On the occasion of the untimely tragic death of the colleague Vittorio A. Rapisarda, who devoted the last years of his life to the ideation, project and realization of an experiment on the foundations of quantum mechanics, we publish here some relevant pages taken out from the inedited papers deposited by him in 1979 at the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN), Frascati, Italy. A further, brief passage from a recent (1981) document deposited by Rapisarda at the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), Rome, Italy, is added. (E.’sN.)
