Caves Receives the Prestigious Micius Quantum Prize
December 16, 2020
Distinguished Professor Emeritus Carlton Caves, and founding Director of CQuIC, is a recipient of the prestigious Micius Quantum Prize 2020 for his groundbreaking foundational work on quantum metrology and quantum information theory, especially for elucidating the fundamental noise in interferometers and its suppression with the use of squeezed states. As a recipient he will receive a gold medal in honor of the recognition as well as a cash award.

Optical phase estimation approaching the quantum limit in a single shot.
December 3, 2020
Optical phase estimation is at the center of many metrological tasks where the value of a physical parameter of a system is mapped to the phase of an electromagnetic field, and single-shot measurements of this phase retrieve the information of this parameter.
