Single and biphoton imaging and high dimensional quantum communication. (English) Zbl 1250.81024
Summary: Here, we present recent developments in the field of quantum imaging focusing on the high dimensionality aspects of single and biphoton imaging. We discuss some systems that have a “quantum advantage” over classical counterparts. We highlight some recent experiments in single-photon image discrimination, large alphabet quantum key distribution and image buffering.
