Entanglement, scaling, and the meaning of the wave function in protective measurement

Maximilian Schlosshauer and Tangereen V. B. Claringbold (University of Portland) We examine the entanglement and state disturbance arising in a protective measurement and argue that these inescapable effects doom the claim that protective measurement establishes the reality of the wave function. An additional challenge to this claim results from the exponential number of protective measurements required to reconstruct multi-qubit states.... Read more →
