Quantum Optics: Entanglement and Quantum Information

P. G. Kwiat, D. F.V. James

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Quantum information is an emerging field of technology that encompasses the application of fundamental quantum mechanical phenomena, such as entanglement, to tasks in information processing and communications. The importance of optical technology in quantum information is not surprising, given the success of quantum optics in the investigation of these fundamental phenomena and the pre-eminent role of optics in modern communications. This article describes some of the important advances in photonic quantum information and discusses the prospects for the future.
