Using quantum control in foundational experiments allows new theoretical and experimental possibilities. We show how, e.g.,  quantum controlling devices reverse a temporal ordering in  detection. We consider probing of wave–particle duality in   quantum-controlled and the entanglement-assisted delayed-choice experiments. Then we discuss other situations where quantum control may be useful, and finally demonstrate how the techniques we developed are applied to the study of  consistency of the classically reasonable requirements.  In a version of the delayed-choice experiment which ostensibly combines determinism, independence of hidden variables on the conducted experiments, and wave-particle objectivity we show that these ideas are incompatible with any theory, not only with quantum mechanics.
