Abstract

The famous two-slits experiment is used to theoretically introduce the problem of detecting both which-slit (WS) property and another quantum property incompatible with the WS one, together with the measurement of the (complementary) position of the final impact point. General conditions for the existence of solutions are singled out, and a family of solutions is concretely found. Moreover, we theoretically design an ideal experiment which realizes this non-trivial detection. PACS numbers: 03.65.Ca, 03.65.Db, 03.65.Ta
