Twisted Light Explored for Quantum Communications

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Fully understanding “twisted” light may enable its use in quantum communication applications, and an experimental technique has yielded the first characterization of the azimuthal Wigner distribution of a photon. Twisted light has raised interest as a potential enabler of quantum communications. The discrete nature of orbital angular momentum, or OAM, one of the defining parameters of twisted light, makes it attractive for encoding quantum information. There is also no known fundamental limit to the maximum OAM value that can be coded into a photon, which could allow for...Read full article
