Kevin Jones: Publishes on Quantum Information Technology

Posted July 1: Kevin Jones, McElfresh Professor of Physics, in collaboration with colleagues at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, published a paper describing a laboratory realization of a near-ideal amplifier for light and a study of its effects on the quantum mechanical state of a pair of light beams.  The article,  “Low-noise amplification of a continuous-variable quantum state,” appeared in Quantum Information and Computation VIII, published by SPIE, an international professional society for the advancement of optics and photonics.
