Atom interferometers covering macroscopic domains of space-time are a spectacular manifestation of the wave nature of matter. Because of their unique coherence properties, Bose-Einstein condensates are ideal sources for an atom interferometer in extended free fall. In this Letter we report on the realization of an asymmetric Mach-Zehnder interferometer(More)
We demonstrate a novel second-order spatial interference effect between two indistinguishable pairs of disjoint optical paths from a single chaotic source. Beside providing a deeper understanding of the physics of multi-photon interference and coherence, the effect enables retrieving information on both the spatial structure and the relative position of two(More)
We provide a compact full description of multiboson correlation measurements of arbitrary order N in passive linear interferometers with arbitrary input single-photon pure states. This allows us to physically analyze the novel problem of multiboson correlation sampling at the output of random linear interferometers. Our results also describe general(More)
We demonstrate how the physics of multiboson correlation interference leads to the computational complexity of linear optical interferometers based on correlation measurements in the degrees of freedom of the input bosons. In particular, we address the task of multiboson correlation sampling (MBCS) from the probability distribution associated with(More)
We introduce a new factorization algorithm, based on the analogue determination of the periodicity of a single generalized continuous truncated exponential sum (CTES) interferogram. We demonstrate that this algorithm allows, in principle, to factorize arbitrary numbers exploiting a remarking rescaling property of the recorded CTES interference pattern. Such(More)
We report a recent experimental simulation of a controlled-NOT gate operation based on polarization correlation measurements of thermal fields in photon-number fluctuations. The interference between pairs of correlated paths at the very heart of these experiments has the potential for the simulation of correlations between a larger number of qubits.
We present the experimental characterization of two distant double-slit masks illuminated by chaotic light, in the absence of first-order imaging and interference. The scheme exploits second-order interference of light propagating through two indistinguishable pairs of disjoint optical paths passing through the masks of interest. The proposed technique(More)
