Popper's experiment and conditional uncertainty relations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review


Application of the uncertainty principle to conditional measurements is investigated and found to be valid for measurements on separated sub-systems. In light of this, an apparent violation of the uncertainty principle obtained by Kim and Shih in their realization of Popper's experiment [1] is explained through analogy with a simple optical system.
