Photon trajectories contrary to the de Broglie-Bohm interpretation

Kazufumi Sakai

Abstract


The de Broglie-Bohm interpretation was built to perform the same statistical predictions as a standard quantum theory in every conceivable physical situation, and the two theories cannot be distinguished. In this study, the trajectories of crossed photon pairs were examined, and different results were obtained under certain conditions even when there were no differences in the statistical measurements. The conditions and experimental results showed that the trajectories of photons followed the standard interpretation of quantum theory with high probability.
