Infinite Wave Resolution of the EPR Paradox

  • R. D. Prosser
Part of the Fundamental Theories of Physics book series (FTPH, volume 10)


An infinite wave model of the photon is used to show that for light incident on a glass polarizer the transmitted and reflected photons originate in different parts of the beam. The presence of a second polarizer induces reflection and transmission zones in the incident beam. The position of these zones is affected by the orientation of the second polarizer which can thus determine whether a particular photon is transmitted or reflected at the first polarizer. It is this influence of the remote polarizer, specifically excluded by EPR, that resolves the paradox.
