"The secret lives of photons revealed" - physicsworld.com.

It seems that this experiment violates the Copenhagen interpretation. Is it still valid? Can you please give me more insight on this experiment?

    $\begingroup$ The news article is rather meaningless. The copahagen interpretation is just an (unndeccessary) "interpretation" of QM, a time - pass thing, with no physical meaning. $\endgroup$ – Abhimanyu Pallavi Sudhir Sep 11 '13 at 16:29

    $\begingroup$ That is not a plot of a single photon. It is a plot of zillions of photons. $\endgroup$ – anna v Sep 11 '13 at 17:02

    $\begingroup$ Since interpretations are not science, you are free to choose whichever one you like. It makes no difference to QM. $\endgroup$ – Nick Sep 11 '13 at 18:37
