# Communicating a direction using spin states

@inproceedings{Bagan2001CommunicatingAD, title={Communicating a direction using spin states}, author={Emilio Bagan and Mari{\`a} Baig and Ramon Mu{\~n}oz-Tapia}, booktitle={OFC 2001}, year={2001} }

The communication of directions using quantum states is a useful laboratory test for some basic facts of quantum information. For a system of spin-1/2 particles there are different quantum states that can encode directions. This information can later be decoded by means of a generalized measurement. In this talk we present the optimal strategies under different assumptions. c 2008 Optical Society of America OCIS codes: (000.1600) Classical and quantum physics; (200.3050) Information processing… Expand
