Phase narrowing a coherent state via repeated measures: only the no counts count Academic Article uri icon


  • A scheme is proposed whereby the phase distribution of a field in a coherent state can be narrowed by the process of continuous measurements. The amplitude of a small signal is built up by the measurement process thereby resulting in phase narrowing. 1993 IOP Publishing Ltd.
