Quantum Mechanics Simulations

We have created two programs that simulate experiments studying the behavior of photon pairs. The polarizations of the two photons are correlated, and the correlations can be chosen to be either classical (mixed states) or quantum mechanical (entangled states.) The programs are built from similar programs used to control actual experiments, so they have the same look and feel as the experimental programs. In particular, experimental noise is incorporated into the simulations in a realistic way.

For more details on the programs, check out the Userís Manual.

There are two versions of the programs:
