Hyperentangled photons for communication and metrology

Paul G. Kwiat, Julio Barreiro

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Photons from spontaneous downconversion may be simultaneously entangled in multiple degrees of freedom ("hyperentangled"), enabling new capabilities in quantum communication and metrology. We present one example-remote preparation of entangled polarization/spatial-mode states-and discuss possible applications.
