I thought measurement at detectors is what collapes the wave function. So why aren't these detectors causing collapse? Why is there an interference pattern?

  • $\begingroup$ You’ll need to define your notation for folks to be able to answer you - are you using the detector IDs from a wiki article? I’d link if so. $\endgroup$ – JPattarini Dec 7 '18 at 13:00
  • $\begingroup$ Whatever setup you're talking about, what makes you think that the wave function doesn't collapse? $\endgroup$ – Jasper Dec 7 '18 at 13:11
