Examples

  • This work needed to map the triphoton on a globe, which we represented on a sphere providing an intuitive and easily applicable visualization.

    Nano Tech Wire

  • In the U of T experiment, the physicists combined three separate photons of light together inside an optical fibre, to create a triphoton.

  • When we squeezed our triphoton continent, at first all proceeded as in earlier experiments.

  • For the first time, we have demonstrated a technique for generating any desired triphoton state and shown that the spherical nature of polarization states of light has unavoidable consequences.

  • The symmetry properties of polarization imply that the measured triphoton states can be most naturally represented by quasi-probability distributions on the surface of a sphere.
