Locality, reality and measurement have been central questions in Quantum Mechanics since its first formulation. Empirical tests addressing these issues were first proposed by John Bell in 1964. Subsequent experiments in atomic and optical systems have been found to agree with the quantum predictions at ~eV energies, and to disagree with local hidden-variable theories. I’ll discuss how, by exploiting developments from the field of quantum computing, we can now also conceive of extending these tests to high-energy systems such as Higgs boson decays.
