Single photon measurements: Quantum Enhanced Measurements

Summary

Using a detector capable telling how many photons were received, we explored the potential for enhanced measurement resolution in two measurement applications.

Description

Super-resolution and Sub-Rayleigh beam measurements - We tested the advantages of a photon-number-resolving detector and classical states in resolving closely spaced optical beams.
