We recast the quantum no-cloning theorem in a form that preserves spin statistics and apply it to entanglement. 
Quantum Origins of the Density Operator
Students in quantum mechanics class are taught that the wave function contains all knowable information about an isolated system. Later in the course, this view seems to be contradicted by the
Post Quantum Cryptography: Techniques, Challenges, Standardization, and Directions for Future Research
The vulnerability of the classical cryptosystems in the context of quantum computers is analyzed, various postquantum cryptos system families are discussed, the status of the NIST post-quantum cryptography standardization process is discussed, and a couple of future research directions in this field are provided.
Length as a paradigm for understanding the classical limit
It is regrettable that the quantum length of an object is rarely if ever discussed, because it provides an ideal pedagogical paradigm for understanding how a physicist uses classical intuition to


Twelve years before the quantum no-cloning theorem
The celebrated quantum no-cloning theorem establishes the impossibility of making a perfect copy of an unknown quantum state. The discovery of this important theorem for the field of quantum

The concept of transition in quantum mechanics
The concept of quantum transition is critically examined from the perspective of the modern quantum theory of measurement. Historically rooted in the famous quantum jump of the Old Quantum Theory,
Entangled photons, nonlocality, and Bell inequalities in the undergraduate laboratory
We use polarization-entangled photon pairs to demonstrate quantum nonlocality in an experiment suitable for advanced undergraduates. The photons are produced by spontaneous parametric downconversion
A single quantum cannot be cloned
If a photon of definite polarization encounters an excited atom, there is typically some nonvanishing probability that the atom will emit a second photon by stimulated emission. Such a photon is
Quantum entanglement with Freedman's inequality
The assumption of local realism imposes constraints, such as Bell inequalities, on quantities obtained from measurements. In recent years, various tests of local realism have gained popularity in
