Unobservable Potentials to Explain a Quantum Eraser and a Delayed-Choice Experiment
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 62, 111-122, 2017
Abstract
We present a new explanation for a quantum eraser. Mathematical description of the traditional explanation needs quantum-superposition states. However, the phenomenon can be explained without quantum-superposition states by introducing unobservable potentials which can be identified as an indefinite metric vector. In addition, a delayed choice experiment can also be explained by the interference between the photons and unobservable potentials, which seems like an unreal long-range correlation beyond the causality.
