The role of the timing and order of quantum measurements is not just a fundamental question of quantum mechanics, but also a puzzling one. Any part of a quantum system that has finished evolving can be measured immediately or saved for later, without affecting the final results, regardless of the continued evolution of the rest of the system. In addition, the nonlocality of quantum mechanics, as manifested by entanglement, does not apply only to particles with spacelike separation, but also to… Expand
How a single photon can mediate entanglement between two others
Abstract We describe a novel quantum information protocol, which probabilistically entangles two distant photons that have never interacted. Different from the entanglement swapping protocol, whichExpand
Relativity of quantum states in entanglement swapping
Abstract The entanglement swapping protocol is analyzed in a relativistic setting, where shortly after the entanglement swapping is performed, a Bell test is performed. For an observer in theExpand

TLDR
The experimental demonstrations of the generalized two-photon interferometry with both the interferometric properties of the Hong-Ou-Mandel effect and the fully unfolded version of the path-entangled photon number state using photon-pair sources, which are independently generated by spontaneous parametric down-conversion.

Quantum Entanglement in Time
TLDR
This thesis describes how the entanglement in time provides the quantum advantage over a classical blockchain, namely a quantum blockchain, and explores this temporal effect within the study of quantum information and its foundations as well as through relativistic quantum information. Expand
