Quantenkoffer physics science kit - Introduction

The Quantenkoffer and its modular design offer different approaches. You can choose to follow ideas and well-known experiments from 100 years of quantum physics, or you can use its intuitive software and design experiments from scratch.

Here is a list of the prepared experiments you can performe.

Single Photon Experiments without Interference:
– Particle Nature of Photons
– Quantum Cryptography/QKD: BB84 Protocol
– Tomographic Single Photon State Reconstruction
– Quantum Zeno Effect
– Quantum Random Number Generation

Single Photon Experiments with Interference
– Wave Nature of Photons: Single Photon Michelson Interferometer
– Quantum Eraser
– Wave-Particle Dualism: Michelson + HBT
– Double Michelson Interferometer
– Visible (White) Light Interference (Observable by Eye)
– Measurement of the Central Wavelength of Single Photons
– Measurement of Coherence Length of Single Photons
– Interaction-Free Measurement (Bomb Test)

Photon Pair Experiments with Polarisation Entanglement
– Violation of Bell’s Inequality (CHSH)
– “Non-Classical” Polarisation Correlations
– Tomographic State Reconstruction of an Entangled Photon State
– Quantum Cryptography/QKD: BBM Protocol
– Quantum Cryptography: Ekert Protocol
– Photon Pair Experiments without Polarisation Entanglement
– Hong-Ou-Mandel 2-Photon Interference
– Hong-Ou-Mandel Interference + Hanbury Brown & Twiss
Franson Interference

These are the experiments we have come up with so far and found interesting enough to put them here. Do you have more ideas? Please let us know!
