Two-photon scheme for detecting the Bell basis using atomic coherence Academic Article uri icon


  • We present a scheme in which each of the four maximally polarization-entangled two-photon Bell states is uniquely correlated with counts registered in one of four detectors. Once realized experimentally, this Bell box will allow implementations, different from the already existing ones, of the concepts of quantum dense coding or quantum teleportation. 1999 The American Physical Society.
