Two-particle quantum transmission

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Two-photon interference is a fundamental phenomenon in quantum mechanics and stands at the base of numerous experimental observations. Here another manifestation of this phenomenon is described, taking place at a Y junction. Specifically it is shown how the r2 + t2 term which is behind previous observations of two-photon interference, may give rise to different states at a, beamsplitter and different two-particie transmission coefficients at a Y junction. Different from previous descriptions of quantum transmission based on one-particle physics, the enhanced transmission described here is due to two-particie physics.
