We show that it is possible to associate a de Broglie wavelength to a composite system even when the constituent particles are separated spatially. The nonlocal de Broglie wavelength (A /2) of a two-photon system separated spatially is measured with an appropriate detection system. The two-photon system is prepared in an entangled state in space-momentum variables. - Pacs: 42.50.-p, 42.50.Ar
