Adaptive measurements in nonorthogonal state discrimination



Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Alan L. Migdall


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 dicult or not possible with nonadap- tive measurements. In this note, we brie y describe some of the latest examples of schemes using adaptive measurements for an applications relevant to quantum information science and quantum communications, speci cally, for nonorthogonal state discrimination.
