Our group has successfully received the NSERC Discovery Grant, which will support the research for the next five years.
Our lab renovation has been started in at the beginning of April 2020 and will be finished by the end of June 2020.
In this paper 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 a digital phase-conjugate receiver based on linear quadrature measurements that outperforms a symmetric classical noise radar in the same conditions, despite the entanglement-breaking signal path.
