Associated research grant:09/52157-5 - Teleportation of quantum information between different colors, AP.R


In quantum optics, the measurements involving quadratures of the field generally use the beat signal involving the central carrier of the field and the noise contained in the two sidebands. This characteristic feature of the detection implies a limitation to the direct application of entanglement tests proposed in the theory, involving covariances among single field modes. We plan to investigate this problem in detail, and to make direct observations of its implications in Optical Parametric Oscillators, both above and below threshold. The understanding of this phenomenon is important for an optimized implementation of quantum information processing protocols, as is the case of teleportation. (AU)
