Illustration of Photons

Caption: The illustration shows how the scattering of photons occurs in a complex photonic medium. Two photons are emitted from a light source in the center and move through a labyrinth to illustrate complex scattering. The photons take different paths through the medium, but they are interdependent in the sense that that the chance of observing a photon at one outlet is increased if a photon is observed at the other outlet.
