Optimal photon cloning

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this study, optimal universal cloning was realized via stimulated emission in three-level systems. The permutation symmetry of the interaction allowed to map the system onto bosonic modes independent of the number of atoms used. A remarkable connection between stimulated emission and optimal cloning was observed.
