Structured light allows communication with infinite Photonic alphabet

Illustration shows the creation of hybrid interlaced photons combining polarization with a twisted light pattern that carries orbital angular momentum . This structured light allows you to use quantum protocols to create a larger coding alphabet, more security and better noise resistance.


Structured light

The creation of Structured Light beams - light in exotic patterns such as spirals - not only revealed a strange new world of light, but also opened new fields of technological exploration for photonics .

And it seems that these application possibilities have not even been scratched.

Two South African researchers have already shown that it is possible to exploit helical beams of light to create an alphabet, which promises not only greater security and robustness in communications, but also a new way to explore the physics behind quantum computers. .

"What we really want is to do quantum mechanics with light patterns. By that we mean that light comes in a variety of patterns that can be differentiated - like our faces," explained Andrew Forbes of the University of Witwatersrand.


Since light patterns can be distinguished from each other, they can be used as an alphabet form. "The cool thing is that there is, at least in principle, an infinite set of patterns, so an infinite alphabet is available," said Forbes.

Different patterns of structured light - the "letters" of the infinite photonic alphabet.

Multidimensional States

Traditionally, quantum protocols have been implemented with light bias, which has only two values, which means a maximum photon information capacity of just 1 bit - remembering that one bit per photon is already incredibly better than the floods of light. electrons used today. Using structured light patterns as an alphabet, in turn, the information capacity is much greater, not to mention the gains in safety and noise resistance.

"Light patterns are a path to what we call large states," continues Forbes. "They are large because many standards are involved in the quantum process. Unfortunately, the toolkit for managing these patterns is still underdeveloped and requires a lot of work."

That's why he and his colleague Isaac Nape began working with hybrid states, which combine the traditional use of polarization with structured modes of light.

"It turns out that many protocols can be implemented efficiently with simpler tools, combining polarized patterns for the best of both worlds," said Forbes. "Instead of two pattern dimensions, hybrid states allow access to multidimensional states, for example an infinite set of two-dimensional systems. This seems to be a promising way to truly make a quantum lattice based on light patterns come true."

  1. Hello everyone , good day , i just want to share a review on what happened to me and my uncle last month . when i thought i have seen it all but Dr Sambo let me know that there is more to life . i had Herpes Simplest Virus HSV2 and my uncle was tested HIV positive . we spent a lot trying to get cured ,until i contacted Dr Sambo for a help . just within 21 days his herbal medicine cured me and my uncle , its still unbelievable to me and other member of my family . but I'm cured and my uncle is now tested HIV negative just after 21day . this is a miracle. i do not know how else i can appreciate Dr Sambo for his works , other than to share my review for others to see Email: (divinespellhome@gmail.com) Dr.Sambo WhatsApp him now +2348145810121  You can also visit his  website http://DrSambo443.website2.me God bless Dr. Sambo for his good work...
