Practical issues in theoretical descriptions of experimental quantum state and entanglement estimation
MetadataShow full item record
We study entanglement estimation and verification in realistic situations, taking into account experimental imperfections and statistical fluctuations due to finite data. We consider both photonic and spin-1/2 systems. We study how entanglement created with mixed photon wave packets is degraded. We apply statistical analysis to and propose criteria for reliable entanglement verification and estimation. Finally we devote some effort to making quantum state estimation efficient by applying information criteria. This dissertation includes previously published co-authored material.
