Quantum enhancement of signal-to-noise ratio with a heralded linear amplifier

Zhao, Jie; Dias, Josephine; Haw, Jing Yan; Symul, Thomas; Bradshaw, Mark; Blandino, Remi; Ralph, Timothy Cameron; Assad, Syed; Lam, Ping Koy


Amplification of signals is an elemental function for many information processing systems and communication networks. However, optical quantum amplification has always been a technical challenge in both free space and fiber optics communication. Any phase-insensitive amplification of quantum light states would experience a degradation of signal-to-noise ratio as large as 3 dB for large gains. Fortunately, this degradation can be surmounted by probabilistic amplification processes. Here we...[Show more]
