Quantum-state engineering with continuous-variable postselection

Lance, Andrew; Jeong, Hyunseok; Grosse, Nicolai; Symul, Thomas; Ralph, Timothy Cameron; Lam, Ping Koy

Description

We present a scheme to conditionally engineer an optical quantum system via continuous-variable measurements. This scheme yields high-fidelity squeezed single photons and a superposition of coherent states, from input single- and two-photon Fock states, respectively. The input Fock state is interacted with an ancilla squeezed vacuum state using a beam splitter. We transform the quantum system by postselecting on the continuous-observable measurement outcome of the ancilla state. We...[Show more]
