- n. A composite particle created by overlapping three indistinguishable photons in an optical fibre and manipulating their spin
Sorry, no etymologies found.
This work needed to map the triphoton on a globe, which we represented on a sphere providing an intuitive and easily applicable visualization.
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.
In the current study, the physicists combined three separate photons of light together inside an optical fibre, to create a triphoton.
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.
