Abstract.We report on a delayed-choice quantum eraser experiment based on a two-photon imaging scheme using entangled photon pairs. After the detection of a photon which passed through a double-slit, a random delayed choice is made to erase or not erase the which-path information by the measurement of its distant entangled twin; the particle-like and wave-like behavior of the photon are then recorded simultaneously and respectively by only one set of joint detection devices. The present eraser…

A realizable delayed-choice quantum eraser, using a modified Mach-Zehnder (MZ) interferometer and polarization entangled photons, is theoretically analyzed here. The signal photon goes through a

The Vienna Delayed-Choice Quantum Eraser Leaves No Choice

A realizable delayed-choice quantum eraser, using a modified Mach-Zehnder (MZ) interferometer and polarization entangled photons, is theoretically analyzed here. The signal photon goes through a

The method of quantum optical communication based on entangled photon pairs

During the last two decades have been successfully developed the quantum cryptography techniques that rely either on manipulation of the polarized single photons or the entangled photon pairs. At

Decoherence in a double-slit quantum eraser

We study and experimentally implement a double-slit quantum eraser in the presence of a controlled decoherence mechanism. A two-photon state, produced in a spontaneous parametric down-conversion

Control of quantum interference in the quantum eraser

We have implemented an optical quantum eraser with the aim of studying this phenomenon in the context of state discrimination. An interfering single photon is entangled with another one serving as a

Doubly tagged delayed-choice tunable quantum eraser: coherence, information and measurement

We present an idea for the doubly tagged delayed-choice tunable quantum eraser in a cavity QED setup, based on fully controlled resonant as well as dispersive atom–field interactions. Two cavity

Quantum erasure in the near-field

The phenomenon of quantum erasure has shed light on the nature of wave-particle duality and quantum complementarity. A number of quantum erasers have been realized using the far-field diffraction of

Quantum coherence and path-distinguishability of two entangled particles

Abstract An interference experiment with entangled particles is theoretically analyzed, where one of the entangled pair (particle 1) goes through a multi-slit before being detected at a fixed

Demystifying the delayed-choice quantum eraser

The delayed-choice quantum eraser has long been a subject of controversy, and has been looked at as being incomprehensible to having retro-causal effect in time. Here the delayed-choice quantum

Delayed-choice gedanken experiments and their realizations

The wave-particle duality dates back to Einstein's explanation of the photoelectric effect through quanta of light and de Broglie's hypothesis of matter waves. Quantum mechanics uses an abstract



Double-slit quantum eraser

We report a quantum eraser experiment which actually uses a Young double slit to create interference. The experiment can be considered an optical analogy of an experiment proposed by Scully, Englert,

Delayed "Choice" quantum eraser

The experimental results demonstrate the possibility of delayed determination of particlelike or wavelike behavior via quantum entanglement, and the which-path or both-path information of a quantum can be marked or erased by its entangled twin even after the registration of the quantum.

Complementarity and quantum erasure with entangled-photon states

A quantum-erasure experiment was performed on superposition states of two photons in either of two spatiotemporal modes. Symmetrical tapping of energy from the two-mode state creates a four-mode

Observation of a "quantum eraser": A revival of coherence in a two-photon interference experiment.

Experimental results are presented showing how the degree of erasure depends on the relative orientation of the polarizers, along with theoretical curves, and how the act of ``pasting together'' two previously distinguishable paths can introduce a new relative phase between them.

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

Comprehensive experimental test of quantum erasure

Abstract:In an interferometer, path information and interference visibility are incompatible quantities. Complete determination of the path will exclude any possibility of interference, rendering

A complementarity experiment with an interferometer at the quantum–classical boundary

An experimental investigation of complementarity using an interferometer in which the properties of one of the beam-splitting elements can be tuned continuously from being effectively microscopic to macroscopic, illustrating the quantum to classical transition.

Quantitative wave-particle duality and nonerasing quantum erasure

The notion of wave-particle duality may be quantified by the inequality V{sup 2}+K{sup 2}{<=}1, relating interference fringe visibility V, and path knowledge K. With a single-photon interferometer in

Origin of quantum-mechanical complementarity probed by a ‘which-way’ experiment in an atom interferometer

The principle of complementarity refers to the ability of quantum-mechanical entities to behave as particles or waves under different experimental conditions. For example, in the famous double-slit
