Weekly Papers on Quantum Foundations (16)

At what time does a quantum experiment have a result?   The Extended Bloch Representation of Quantum Mechanics for Infinite-Dimensional Entities. (arXiv:1704.06249v1 [quant-ph])  quant-ph updates on arXiv.org on 2017-4-21 7:39am GMT Authors: Diederik Aerts, Massimiliano Sassoli de Bianchi We show that the extended Bloch representation of quantum mechanics also applies to infinite-dimensional entities, to the extent that the number of (possibly infinitely...

Quantum detection of wormholes. (arXiv:1702.01720v2 [quant-ph] UPDATED)  gr-qc updates on arXiv.org on 2017-4-08 12:56am GMT Authors: Carlos Sabín We show how to use quantum metrology to detect a wormhole. A coherent state of the electromagnetic field experiences a phase shift with a slight dependence on the throat radius of a possible distant wormhole. We show that this tiny correction is, in...
