Here are a doublet of papers for an undergraduate laboratory demonstrating Bell's Inequality and and entangled photons. The whole apparatus (detailed in the second paper) is estimated to cost USD 15k circa 2002, so the optical elements have probably come down in price since then.

How did microsoft get around the embargo?
They aren't a company, man. They're their own frickn' weather system. They just need the coriolis force the tell them which way to spin.
