  • We transmit phase-encoded non-orthogonal quantum states through a 5-km long fibre-based distributed optical phase-sensitive amplifier (OPSA) using telecom-wavelength photonic qubit pairs. The gain is set to equal the transmission loss to probabilistically preserve input states during transmission. While neither state is optimally aligned to the OPSA, each input state is equally amplified with no measurable degradation in state quality. These results promise a new approach to reduce the effects of loss by encoding quantum information in a two-qubit Hilbert space which is designed to benefit from transmission through an OPSA.
  • We propose a model for the measurement of an arbitrary multimode entangled state of the cavity field using two-photon correlated emission laser. We consider two cases: (a) The modes have different frequencies and are detected separately and (b) the modes consist of two orthogonal polarization states and are detected using a single balanced homodyne detector. The basic idea is to amplify the initial multimode state such that there is no-noise in the quadrature of interest and all the noise is fed into the conjugate quadrature component. The amplified noise-free quadrature is prepared in different phases and then corresponding quadrature distributionmore » is measured. The Wigner function of the initial multimode entangled state is then reconstructed by using inverse Radon transformation. This scheme is insensitive to the noise associated with the nonunit efficiency of the detector in the homodyne detection measurement scheme.« less
  • PVM is an inexpensive, but extremely effective tool which allows a researcher to use workstations as nodes in a parallel processing environment to perform largescale computations. The numerical approximation and visualization of seismic waves propagating in the earth strains today`s largest supercomputers. The authors present timings and visualization for large earth models run on a ring of IBM RS/6000`s which illustrate PVM`s capability of handling large-scale problems.
  • A new method is suggested for the nondestructive measurement of elastic moduli in local area (100{approx}400 {mu}m in diameter) using the phase-sensitive acoustic microscope. The complex V(z) curve which denotes the amplitude and phase of reflected ultrasonic wave front a specimen through the liquid coupler is measured for the variable defocused distance z from the surface of specimen. The reflectance function of the liquid-solid interface is computed from the inverse Fourier transform of the complex V(z) curve. The velocities of the longitudinal, transverse and Rayleigh waves in the specimen can be estimated from the function. Then, the Young`s modulus, shearmore » modulus and Poisson`s ratio of the specimen can be determined from the density and the measured wave velocities according to the elastodynamic theory. The elastic moduli for several kinds of glasses obtained by acoustic microscopy those obtained by other methods. It is shown that this method can be used to measure the local distribution of the microscopic characteristics in inhomogeneous materials as in the experimental results for an aluminum alloy presented here.« less
