Abstract:In this article we give an introduction to non-locality in quantum mechanics. A simple summary of the basic quantum mechanics required is given. Then we present Bell's proof of quantum non-locality and also we give simple presentations of more recent proofs. Finally we consider the difficulties faced by experimentalists in testing quantum non-locality and review some of the many experiments that have been performed.
