Project Title: Optical realisations of continuous-variable quantum information
Investigators: Stephen Bartlett.
Date: 2003 - 2004.
Project Type: ; ARC Discovery


Funded Amount: 310000

General Information

The project aims to develop a framework for optical realisations of continuous-variable quantum information. Such realisations offer the potential for major technological advances in quantum information processing in the near future, but are currently impeded by the lack of a well-defined theoretical foundation. This project aims to construct such a foundation, including energy cutoffs, detector resolution, and finite resources. Feasible experiments to test and exploit continuous-variable quantum information processing will be proposed. The resulting framework will allow the field to progress beyond proof-of-principle demonstrations and to develop new, technology-driven quantum information protocols.
