"Cross-Sector Entanglement and Bell Violation in Classical Light Beams"

Dr. Joseph Eberly
University of Rochester

ABSTRACT
The classical theory of coherence is briefly summarized and then extended beyond the traditional theory of two-point coherence, which provides only what we identify as diagonal correlation functions. Quantum theory has experience with correlations from 'cross-sector' coherences that are off-diagonal, using them in tests of Bell inequalities. We will employ them in a demonstration of Bell violation with a classical light beam.
