- Coherence and wave-particle duality relations
- Time: 10:00 am
- Place: 5310 Chamberlin Hall
- Speaker: Prof. Mark Hillery , CUNY
- Abstract: Traditional wave-particle duality relations quantify the trade-off between path information and interference visibility of a particle in an interferometer. The recent development of the quantum resource theory of coherence has led to the definition of several new measures of quantum coherence. These can be used to develop new wave-particle duality relations that demonstrate how coherence and path information are complementary quantities. We illustrate this with a wave-particle game.
