Das, Siddhant and Dürr, Detlef (2019): Arrival Time Distributions of Spin-1/2 Particles. In: Scientific Reports, Vol. 9, 2242 [PDF, 1MB]

Abstract

The arrival time statistics of spin-1/2 particles governed by Pauli's equation, and defined by their Bohmian trajectories, show unexpected and very well articulated features. Comparison with other proposed statistics of arrival times that arise from either the usual (convective) quantum flux or from semiclassical considerations suggest testing the notable deviations in an arrival time experiment, thereby probing the predictive power of Bohmian trajectories. The suggested experiment, including the preparation of the wave functions, could be done with present-day experimental technology.
