Abstract

A wavelength λ independent neutron interferometry (NI) technique has been applied to measure the scattering length densities Nb of liquid mixtures of H2O-D2O near room temperature. The experimental data have been compared to the conventional theroy based on two separate liquids, with no deviations greater than 0.4% observed. This result is inconsistent with that predicted by quantum entanglement (QE).
