Spin entanglement, decoherence and Bohm's EPR paradox
We obtain criteria for entanglement and the EPR paradox for spin-entangled particles and analyse the effects of decoherence caused by absorption and state purity errors. For a two qubit photonic state, entanglement can occur for all transmission efficiencies. In this case, the state preparation purity must be above a threshold value. However, Bohm’s spin EPR paradox can be achieved only above a critical level of loss. We calculate a required efficiency of 58%, which appears...[Show more]
