原始语种摘要: It is well known that Wheeler proposed several delayed choice experiments in order to show the impossibility to speak of the way a quantum system behaves before being detected. In a double-slit experiment, when do photons decide to travel by one way or by two ways? Delayed choice experiments seem to indicate that, strangely, it is possible to change the “decision” of the photons until the very last moment before they are detected. This led Wheeler to his famous sentence: “No elementary quantum phenomenon is a phenomenon until it is a registered phenomenon, brought to a close by an irreversible act of amplification.” Nevertheless, some authors wrote that backward in time effects were needed to explain these results. I will show that in delayed choice experiments involving only one...
