This lab was developed by Berkeley Professor Hartmut Haeffner and several undergraduate students and volunteers see acknowledgements. The current experiment is to show a violation of Bell's inequalities. By fully shielding the blue laser beam path, which is set up permanently, we can allow students to assemble and align all optical components downstream of the BBO crystal. A set of detection arms with attached breadboards that pivot at the BBO crystal makes it easy for students to adjust the angle at which downconverted photons are detected without the tedium of moving each optical component separately. During the summer of , assembly began led by Segre intern Will Morong, with help from another intern, Bennett Sodergren.

Quantum Mechanics: Theory and Experiment
It is unique in that it describes not only quantum theory, but also presents five laboratories that explore truly modern aspects of quantum mechanics. The text begins by presenting the classical theory of polarization, moving on to describe the quantum theory of polarization. Analogies between the two theories minimize conceptual difficulties that students typically have when first presented with quantum mechanics. Furthermore, because the laboratories involve studying photons, using photon polarization as a prototypical quantum system allows the laboratory work to be closely integrated with the coursework. Polarization represents a two-dimensional quantum system, so the introduction to quantum mechanics uses two-dimensional state vectors and operators. This allows students to become comfortable with the mathematics of a relatively simple system, before moving on to more complicated systems.
