it is possible in an interferometer to block the paths with screens so that the particle is well located in one of the paths. I wonder if it is the same when instead of screen we use traps in which a particle could not escape. Is the path measured? is one of them heavier? i am asking this because we can remove the interferometer. we are left with two traps and i wonder if they are different.
