[2018-06-29]Researchers First Reveal the Behaviors of Photons in a Birefringent Interferometer

The CAS Key Laboratory of Quantum Information, led by academician GUO Guangcan, has achieved significant progresses in theoretical and experimental study of photon interference in a birefringent interferometer, Prof. SHI Baosen, Associate Researcher ZHOU Zhiyuan and their collaborators construct a quantum optical model for a birefringent interferometer and reveal the interference behavior of photons in this interferometer for the first time, the experimental demonstration agree very well with the theoretical predictions. The main results have been published in journal “Physical Review Letters” [Phys. Rev. Lett. 120, 263601(2018)].
