We show that any multi-qudit entanglement witness leads to a non-separability indicator for quantum optical fields, which involves intensity correlations. We get, e.g., necessary and sufficient conditions for intensity or intensity-rate correlations to reveal polarization entanglement. We also derive separability conditions for experiments involving multiport interferometers, now feasible with integrated optics. We show advantages of using intensity rates rather than intensities, e.g., a…

Most of the paradoxical, for the classical intuition, features of quantum theory were formulated for situations which involve a fixed number of particles. While one can now find a formulation of


Bell inequalities for quantum optical fields
We show that the "practical" Bell inequalities, which use intensities as the observed variables, commonly used in quantum optics and widely accepted in the community, suffer from an inherent
Multiphoton nonclassical correlations in entangled squeezed vacuum states
Photon-number correlation measurements are performed on bright squeezed vacuum states using a standard Bell-test setup, and quantum correlations are observed for conjugate polarization-frequency
Stimulated emission of polarization-entangled photons
Entangled photon pairs—discrete light quanta that exhibit non-classical correlations—play a crucial role in quantum information science (for example, in demonstrations of quantum non-locality,
On entanglement of light and Stokes parameters
We present a new approach to Stokes parameters, which enables one to see better non-classical properties of bright quantum light, and of undefined overall photon numbers. The crucial difference is as
Multiphoton entanglement and interferometry
Multiphoton entanglement is the basis of many quantum communication schemes, quantum cryptographic protocols, and fundamental tests of quantum theory. Spontaneous parametric down‐conversion is the
Entanglement, number fluctuations and optimized interferometric phase measurement
We derive a phase-entanglement criterion for two bosonic modes that is immune to number fluctuations, using the generalized Moore–Penrose inverse to normalize the phase-quadrature operator. We also

A bipartite multiphoton entangled state is created through stimulated parametric down-conversion of strong laser pulses in a nonlinear crystal. It is shown how detectors that do not resolve the

This work shows how to generate the required entanglement, utilizing either an adiabatic two-mode or a dynamic four-mode interaction strategy, with techniques that take advantage of s-wave scattering interactions to provide the nonlinear coupling.

By pumping two or more downconversion crystals with a pulsed laser, it is experimentally feasible to obtain with nonnegligible probability one photon pair from each crystal within a pulse, and it is observed that the signal photons emitted together with the idlers are projected onto the desired entangled state.
Clearer visibility of the Hong-Ou-Mandel effect with a correlation function based on rates rather than intensities
We test ideas put forward e.g in arXiv:1508.02368, which suggest that using rates in quantum optics can lead to better indicators of non-classicality for states of quantum optical fields with
