Abstract [en]

Bell's theorem is an important milestone in the development of quantum mechanics.

It draws a line between concepts such as realism and locality on the one hand and

quantum mechanics on the other. Experimentally veried violations of Bell inequalities

can yield important information about what assumptions can be made about physical

reality. Experiments have been conducted for over 40 years, but have left loopholes open

in their executions. It is of great interest to close these loopholes, and in order to do

so, further experiments are needed. The objective of this project is to investigate the

underlying, previous work in the eld and to formulate a proposal for a new experiment.

To do this, the derivations of the original Bell inequality and the CHSH inequality are

presented along with previously conducted experiments. Also presented is the EPR

paradox from which sprung the original Bell inequality.
