The EPR paradox is a thought experiment put forward by Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen intended to show the seemingly impossible results of quantum mechanics, specifically entanglement. Entanglement is when the state of two or more particles cannot be described separately from each other. Put simply, you cannot affect one particle without instantaneously affecting the others. Einstein took issue with the instantaneous action at a distance, which appears to violate relativity, and so proposed a HVT (hidden variable theory). John Bell wrote a paper on this paradox and produced a theorem that could be tested to disprove an HVT. The experiment we performed is a ‘Bell test,’ and the results violate the Bell Inequality, they support quantum mechanics, and are incompatible with any hidden variable theory.
