Two Slit Experiment with Down Converted Beams
An interesting experiment, has been performed1 using downconverted beams in a two-slit arrangement. In this experiment a “nonlocal” quantum effect was demonstrated giving the possibility to control the degree of visibility of Young’s fringes behind two-slit screen in signal beam by means of the diameter of a pinhole in front of idler detector, when coincidence measurement scheme is applied.
