We undertake a pure-state analysis of a noise-dominated quantum event, namely spontaneous photon emission by an excited atom. While pure, the final state is nonseparably entangled. We calculate the participation ratio that provides a measure of the nonseparability, in the context of Schmidt-type analysis. The Schmidt modes serve as pairwise ''pointer''… (More)
We employ an arrangement of polarization analyzer loops to derive several simple Bell inequalities and then discuss the violation of one of them in light of quantum and classical interpretations of the data recorded.
We present coincidence momentum measurements that contradict the independent electron assumption for elliptically polarized laser pulses. This shows that recollision is not the only reason for electron correlation in strong field double ionization.

We analyze the propagation of fast-light pulses through a finite-length resonant gain medium both analytically and numerically. We find that intrinsic instabilities can be avoided in attaining a substantial peak advance with an ultrashort rather than a long or adiabatic probe.
We examine the entanglement dynamics of two two-level systems (A & B) each interacting with separate harmonic oscillators (a & b) in a regime where rotating wave approximation is not valid.
Atmospheric turbulence generally affects the resolution and visibility of an image in long-distance imaging. In a recent quantum ghost imaging experiment [P. B. Dixon et al., Phys. Rev. A 83, 051803 (2011)], it was found that the effect of the turbulence can nevertheless be mitigated under certain conditions. This paper gives a detailed theoretical analysis… (More)
