Computer Science Research Institute (CSRI), Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque NM 87123(Dated: May 23, 2014)Quantum metrology uses quantum states with no classical counterpart to measure a physicalquantity with extraordinary sensitivity or precision. Most metrology schemes measure a singleparameter of a dynamical process by probing it with a specially designed quantum state. The successof such a scheme usually relies on the process belonging to a particular one-parameter family. If… Expand

It is demonstrated how an optical system can be squeezed essentially all the way to the Heisenberg uncertainty limit, showing that the spherical topology of polarization imposes a limit on how much squeezing can occur, leading to the quasi-probability distributions wrapping around the sphere—a phenomenon the authors term ‘over-squeezing’.
