Phase Shifter in a Mach-Zehnder Interferometer

Phase Shifter in a Mach-Zehnder Interferometer

The Phase Shifter in a Mach-Zehnder Interferometer simulation aims to help students make connections between physical and mathematical representations of single photon interference and the measurement process. The simulation allows students to send single photons through an interferometer and insert a phase shifter to vary the relative phase between the two arms. The simulation depicts single photons and the photon superposition state...
