Weak values [1] have presented or inspired intriguing possibilities for precision measurement. A recent example is by Hosten and Kwiat [2], where they were able to amplify the deflections arising from the spin Hall effect of light. The light fields used in their experiment, as well as in Ref. [3], were coherent quasiclassical fields and no apparent quantum mechanical system was employed in either experiment. The classical behavior of these weak value deflection measurements has been known for… CONTINUE READING
