Estimating immanants from interferometric photon coincidences

Presented by Barry Sanders, University of Calgary

With: Si-Hui Tan [National University of Singapore], Hubert de Guise [Lakehead University] and Yvonne Y. Gao [Yale University]

Abstract: We develop a theory for multi-channel passive optical interferometery with one or zero photon entering each input port, and we show that the output photon coincidences yield information about immanants of the interferometer transformation matrix.
