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

Quantum metrology enables estimation of optical phase shifts with precision beyond the shot-noise limit. One way to exceed this limit is to use squeezed states, where the quantum noise of oneExpand
Photonic quantum metrology
TLDR
This work discusses the current experimental and theoretical challenges, and the open questions towards implementation of photonic quantum sensors with quantum-enhanced performances in the presence of noise, in the research area of multiparameter quantum metrology, where multiple parameters have to be estimated at the same time.

Calibration of Quantum Sensors by Neural Networks.
TLDR
It is found that covering finely the parameter space is key to achieving uncertainties close to their ultimate level, and this technique has the potential to become the standard approach to calibrate quantum sensors. Expand
The precision of Mach–Zehnder interferometer in the presence of bit-phase flip
TLDR

Squeezing and over-squeezing of triphotons
TLDR
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’.
