Quantum parameter estimation and state discrimination in continuous variable quantum optics

Bradshaw, Mark

Description

Exemplified by the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, quantum mechanics imposes a fundamental limit to the precision we can measure complementary properties of an object, for example position and momentum. Similarly, quantum mechanics tells us there is a limit to which we can discriminate between two quantum states that are nonorthogonal. Therefore, it is an interesting question to ask, given the laws of quantum mechanics, what exactly is the best measurement outcome we can achieve? This thesis...[Show more]
