Verifying Optical Entanglement
MetadataShow full item record
We look at the problem of verifying optical entanglement for two types of states relevant to quantum information processing. One type occurs in Hong-Ou-Mandel interference and is relevant to quantum computing. The other type is time frequency entanglement which is useful for quantum key distribution. For these types of states the conventional methods of entanglement verification do not work well, and we develop new criteria and methods to verify entanglement of such states. Explicitly, one method takes into account the possible multimode character of two photons, while the other method takes into account the missing data that occur due to the finite range of detectors. This dissertation includes previously published and unpublished co-authored material.
