11. Experimental test of an event-based corpuscular model modification as an alternative to quantum mechanics
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 2/13/2013
Authors: Giorgio Brida, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Marco Genovese, Alan L Migdall, Fabrizio Piacentini, Sergey V Polyakov, Paola Traina
Abstract: We present the first experimental test that distinguishes between an Event-Based Corpuscular Model (EBCM)9) of the interaction of photons with matter and quantum mechanics. The test looks at the interference that results as a single photon passes t ...

12. Experimental demonstration of a receiver beating the standard quantum limit for multiple nonorthogonal coherent-state discrimination
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 1/6/2013
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: The measurement of the state of a quantum system with inherent quantum uncertainty (noise) approaching the ultimate physical limits is of both technological and fundamental interest. Quantum noise prevents any mutually nonorthogonal quantum states ...

13. Adaptive measurements in nonorthogonal state discrimination
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 12/18/2012
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Adaptive measurements represent important resources in quantum information science and quan- tum technologies. They take advantage of the knowledge of partial measurements of the system to optimize subsequent measurements and perform tasks that are ...

14. Preface to Proceedings of the International Conference Quantum Theory: Reconsideration of Foundations-6 (QTRF6) held in Vaxjo, Sweden, 11-14 June 2012
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 12/18/2012
Authors: Harald Atmanspacher, Andrei Khrennikov, Alan L Migdall, Sergey V Polyakov
Abstract: A wide spectrum of topics was presented in talks at this conference: quantum foundations (especially, Heisenberg's uncertainty relation and its generalizations) and information, mathematical formalism of quantum theory, philosophy, methodology of m ...

15. Introduction to Journal of Modern Optics Special Issue on Single-Photon Devices and Applications
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 11/15/2012
Authors: Stefan Kuck, Alan L Migdall, Ivo P Degiovanni, Jessica Cheung
Abstract: This special issue accompanies the 5th international conference on single-photon technologies held at the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), Germany, in June 2011. This community has met every two years at national metrology institutes, sta ...

16. Photon Temporal Correlations Measured Using a Dual-Channel Upconversion Detector
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 10/14/2012
Authors: Paulina S Kuo, Jason S. Pelc, Oliver T Slattery, Martin M. Fejer, Xiao Tang
Abstract: We demonstrate application of a dual-channel upconversion detector as a beamsplitter that preserves photon statistics. We use this beamsplitter to characterize temporal correlations of photons from coherent and pseudo-thermal sources.

17. Quantum Tomography via Compressed Sensing: Error Bounds, Sample Complexity, and Efficient Estimators
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 9/27/2012
Authors: Yi-Kai Liu, Steven T. Flammia, David Gross, Jens Eisert
Abstract: Intuitively, if a density operator has small rank, then it should be easier to estimate from experimental data, since in this case only a few eigenvectors need to be learned. We prove two complementary results that confi rm this intuition. First, ...

18. Gradient-based stopping rules for maximum-likelihood quantum-state tomography
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 9/18/2012
Authors: Scott C Glancy, Emanuel H Knill, Mark Girard
Abstract: When performing maximum likelihood quantum state tomography, one must find the quantum state that maximizes the likelihood for observed measurements on identically prepared systems, all having that quantum state. This optimization is usually perform ...

19. M-ary state phase-shift keying discrimination below the homodyne limit
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 12/22/2011
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Sergey V Polyakov, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We investigate a strategy for M-ary discrimination of nonorthogonal phase states with error rates below the homodyne limit. This strategy uses feed forward to update a reference field and Signal nulling for the state discriminati ...
