Spatial entanglement characterization in a biphoton beam

Spatial entanglement is investigated for applications in quantum imaging relying on multi-photon absorption. A product of variances in space and momentum shows strong violation of the classical

A blazed grating is used for the separation of single photons from photon pairs. The Fraunhofer far field of the two-photon rate depends on the spatial correlation strength of the photons and enables

Noise rejection through an improved quantum illumination protocol

An improved protocol is presented that rejects up to 99.9% of background light and sensor noise in the low photon flux regime, improving upon the previous results by an order of magnitude.

Entangled photon factory: How to generate quantum resource states from a minimal number of quantum emitters

This work presents a general, efficient algorithm for determining how to generate any graph state from a minimal number of quantum emitters.

Single-photon sources: Approaching the ideal through multiplexing.

The requirements for multiplexed sources are studied, various approaches to multiplexing using different degrees of freedom are compared and higher single-photon probabilities are allowed.

A New Superposition of Two Coherent States and its Quantum Properties

We investigate a new superposition of two coherent states via conditional measurement on a Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI). The resulted output state is obtained by using the superposition of two

Bounds on entangled imaging

We present a detailed theoretical analysis of quantum imaging intended to reveal under what conditions it is superior to imaging with non-entangled photons in order to determine practical bounds on

Non-Markovian effect on quantum optical metrology under a dissipative environment

Quantum metrology utilizes quantum effects to reach higher precision measurements of physical quantities compared with their classical counterparts. However the ubiquitous decoherence obstructs its

Retrieving Ideal Precision in Noisy Quantum Optical Metrology.

This work finds that not only can the SNL be beaten, but also the ZL can be asymptotically recovered in a long-encoding-time condition when the photon dissipation is exactly studied in its inherent non-Markovian manner.



Two-photon diffraction and quantum lithography.

Utilizing the entangled nature of a two-photon state, the experimental results have beaten the classical diffraction limit by a factor of 2 and are a quantum mechanical two- photon phenomenon but not a violation of the uncertainty principle.

Spatial entanglement of twin quantum images

Optical system which display quantum entanglement properties in the spatial domain are of great interest for applications, since the amount of information that can be manipulated and processed in

Entangled-photon Fourier optics

Entangled photons, generated by spontaneous parametric downconversion from a second-order nonlinear crystal, present a rich potential for imaging and image-processing applications. Since this source

Numerical simulation of spatial fluctuations in parametric image amplification

Abstract:We study the properties of the spatial fluctuations in the far-field parametric fluorescence output of a type 1 degenerate traveling-wave parametric amplifier. Results of a semi-classical
