Quantum non-demolition measurement in the interferometer
Keywords:cavity quantum electrodynamics, interferometer, photon, quantum non-demolition measurement, which way information
AbstractThe schemes of the arrangements based on the Mach-Zehnder interferometer and the interferometer with two polarizing beam splitters are considered. The interferometers in both the schemes are equipped with some devices, creating a Kerr medium, to perform the quantum non-demolition measurement of a single photon. Such a device gives which way information of the photon while preserving the work of the interferometer.
