Quantum interference with distinguishable photons through indistinguishable pathways

We report a two-photon quantum interference experiment in which the detected individual photons have quite different properties. The interference is observed even when no effort is made to mask the

Two-photon interference between continuous-wave coherent photons temporally separated by a day

An understanding of the phenomenon of light interference forms the kernel underlying the discovery of the nature of light from the viewpoints of both classical physics and quantum physics. Here we

Two-photon interference between distinguishable pathways utilizing SPDC pumped by a multimode diode laser

We report the two-photon interference between distinguishable pathways before arriving at two detectors utilizing SPDC pumped by a multimode diode laser with the distinctive coherence property.

Quantum interferometry with distorted wave packets

Abstract We herein study the rate of coincidences in a Hong–Ou–Mandel interferometer exit whose arms have been supplemented by two optical cavities which reflect the photons generated by parametric

Quantum random number generator using photon-number path entanglement

A quantum random number generator based on the photon-number-path entangled state that is prepared by means of two-photon quantum interference at a beam splitter that satisfies the standard randomness test.

Observation of detection-dependent multi-photon coherence times.

A theoretical analysis reveals that all multi-photon interferences with more than two particles feature this dependence, which can be attributed to higher-order effects in the mutual indistinguishability of the particles.

Informationally symmetrical Bell state preparation and measurement.

This work investigates a linear optical BSM scheme which does not require two photon overlapping at a BS and presents the symmetrically dividable property, which suggests an informationally symmetrical BSM between remote parties without a third party.

Interference of identical particles from entanglement to boson-sampling

Progress in the reliable preparation, coherent propagation and efficient detection of many-body states has recently brought collective quantum phenomena of many identical particles into the

Field operator transformations in quantum optics using a novel graphical method with applications to beam splitters and interferometers

Abstract In this paper we describe a novel, graphical method, allowing the fast computation of field operator transformations for linear lossless optical devices in quantum optics (QO). The advantage



Can Two-Photon Interference be Considered the Interference of Two Photons?

In the sense of a quantum eraser, the distinguishability of the different two-photon Feynman amplitudes leading to a coincidence detection is removed by delaying the compensation until after the output of an unbalanced two-Photon interferometer.

New high-intensity source of polarization-entangled photon pairs.

Type-II noncollinear phase matching in parametric down conversion produces true entanglement: No part of the wave function must be discarded, in contrast to previous schemes.

Correlation measurements of mixed signal and idler photons produced in the process of parametric down-conversion have been performed as a function of two linear polarizer settings. It is found that

Measurement of subpicosecond time intervals between two photons by interference.

A fourth-order interference technique has been used to measure the time intervals between two photons, and by implication the length of the photon wave packet, produced in the process of parametric

Generation of pulsed polarization-entangled two-photon state via temporal and spectral engineering

The quantum state of the photon pair generated from type-II spontaneous parametric downconversion pumped by an ultrafast laser pulse exhibits strong decoherence in its polarization entanglement, an

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.

Interferometric Bell-state preparation using femtosecond-pulse-pumped spontaneous parametric down-conversion

We present a theoretical and experimental study of preparing maximally entangled two-photon polarization states, or Bell states, using femtosecond-pulse-pumped spontaneous parametric down-conversion

A pair of correlated light quanta of 532-nm wavelength with the same linear polarization but divergent directions of propagation was produced by nonlinear optical parametric down conversion and observed a violation of Bell's inequality by 3 standard deviations.

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.
