The Quantum Eraser
This chapter deals with a quantum process where the superposition of two probability amplitudes leads to an interference phenomenon. The two amplitudes can be associated with two quantum paths, as in a double slit interference experiment. We shall first show that these interferences disappear if an intermediate measurement gives information about which path has actually been followed. Next, we shall see how interferences can actually reappear if this information is “erased” by a quantum device.
