Abstract:

Research underway in the Quantum Optics Group at Caltech explores quantum information processing with continuous quantum variables. The most noteworthy success of this program has been the experimental realization of quantum teleportation for coherent states of the electromagnetic field. Beyond our effort to extend these results to achieve yet higher quality of teleportation, we have initiated new research on several fronts. including super-dense quantum coding and teleportation of atomic wavepackets. The research is part of a larger program to lay the foundations for the realization of quantum networks for the distribution and processing of quantum information.
