Microwave Quantum Illumination
9 May, 2020 – Shabir Barzanjeh Our paper Microwave quantum illumination using a digital receiver has been published. In this work we experimentally investigate the concept of quantum illumination at microwave frequencies. We generate entangled fields to illuminate a room-temperature object at a distance of 1 m in a free-space detection setup. We implement aContinue reading “Microwave Quantum Illumination”
