Mesons Violate Bell's Inequality

Peter Rodgers at Physics Web produced this Web news article describing the results of the first test of the Bell's inequality of quantum mechanics in a high-energy particle physics experiment. The Web site reports that when using B mesons the KEK laboratory in Japan found that the inequality was violated by three standard deviations. Students can learn about the basics of Bell's inequality and about the quantum mechanics prediction that non-local correlations can subsist among particles. Visitors can also find out about Apollo Go's speculation that their findings may have implications in the particle-antiparticle quantum number theory.
