Nonlocality and Quantum Foundations

Bell-nonlocality refers to the intriguing fact that certain correlations between spacelike-separated measurement outcomes cannot be explained by any local common cause. That this phenomenon follows from the prediction of quantum theory was hinted in the well-known paper of Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen in 1935 and made obvious by Bell in 1960's. Since then,  the phenomenon has been verified by increasingly complicated experiments under various stringent conditions. Here, we strive to understand this phenomenon better by working within the generalized theory of nonlocality.

Quantum vs Classical & Useful Quantum Effects

Quantum theory offers not only nonlocal correlations, but also other bizarre features that do not seem to fit well with our intuition. For instance, our everyday experience is that reading off the time from a clock does not stop it from ...

Device-independent Quantum Information

Nonlocal quantum correlations are not only intriguing, but also serve as an indispensable resource for device-independent (DI) quantum information processing. Within the DI paradigm,  conclusions are drawn directly from the raw data meas...
