Reshaping the spatial profile, or mode, of a quantum state of light is one of the challenges in many quantum optics applications. We test the noise properties of a universal programmable mode converter and demonstrate that it can reshape the spatial mode of a beam while retaining its quantum properties. No detectable amount of noise is added to the light(More)
Lecanosticta acicola is an ascomycete that causes brown spot needle blight of pine species in many regions of the world. This pathogen is responsible for a major disease of Pinus palustris in the USA and is a quarantine organism in Europe. In order to study the genetic diversity and patterns of spread of L. acicola, eleven microsatellite markers and two(More)
Entanglement between large numbers of quantum modes is the quintessential resource for future technologies such as the quantum internet. Conventionally, the generation of multimode entanglement in optics requires complex layouts of beamsplitters and phase shifters in order to transform the input modes into entangled modes. Here we report the highly(More)
Position and momentum were the first pair of conjugate observables explicitly used to illustrate the intricacy of quantum mechanics. We have extended position and momentum entanglement to bright optical beams. Applications in optical metrology and interferometry require the continuous measurement of laser beams, with the accuracy fundamentally limited by(More)
We introduce a simple and efficient technique to verify quantum discord in unknown Gaussian states and certain class of non-Gaussian states. We show that any separation in the peaks of the marginal distributions of one subsystem conditioned on two different outcomes of homodyne measurements performed on the other subsystem indicates correlation between the(More)
A new kind of an acyclic pushdown automaton for an ordered tree is presented. The nonlinear tree pattern pushdown automaton represents a complete index of the tree for nonlinear tree patterns and accepts all nonlinear tree patterns which match the tree. Given a tree with n nodes, the number of such nonlinear tree patterns is O((2&#x002B;v)<sup>n</sup>),(More)
