Our paper “Is high-dimensional photonic entanglement robust to noise?” has been published as a Featured Article in AVS Quantum Science, and is now on the cover of the journal’s first issue of 2021!
Working in collaboration with the HWQuantum group at Heriot-Watt University, we show that the noise tolerance of high-dimensional entanglement can be significantly enhanced. Answering the question “Is high-dimensional photonic entanglement robust to noise?” involves the complex interplay between the characteristics of the quantum state, the channel, and the detection system. In our work, we provide easily measurable experimental parameters that accurately predict system performance and noise bounds, so that the optimum entanglement measurement strategy can be chosen. This works demonstrates the potential of high-dimensional entangled states in the realisation of entanglement-based communication systems under extreme noise conditions.
