Our paper “Is high-dimensional photonic entanglement robust to noise?” has been published as a Featured Article on AVS Quantum Science, and is now in the cover of the journal’s first issue of 2021!
Working in collaboration with the HWQuantum group, here at Heriot-Watt University, we show that the noise tolerance of high-dimensional entanglement can be significantly enhanced. While answering the question of “Is high-dimensional photonic entanglement robust to noise? involves the complex interplay between the characteristics of the state, the channel, and the detection system, we provide easily measurable experimental parameters that accurately predict system performance and noise bounds, so 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.
