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.
