Quantum Optics Seminar by Prof. Aephraim Steinberg

I will discuss several ongoing projects which investigate quantum measurement, its limitations, and the range of strategies available. 

In particular, I will describe an experiment using weak measurements and ideas from cluster-state quantum computing to demonstrate a violation of Heisenberg's proposed relationship between measurement precision and measurement disturbance; and work investigating the optimal choice of separable or entangled states for tasks ranging from phase estimation or magnetometry to process tomography to detection of decoherence.
