Homework Help: Quantum optics presentation

  1. Nov 18, 2007 #1
    Hi all.

    The final project for my quantum optics class is to find a topic (research paper or something in the field of quantum optics) and present it to the class. The assignment implies that to give an effective presentation you have to understand the topic very well. This high level optics class was my awesomely unhelpful introduction to quantum mechanics in the first place so I am trying very hard but not getting 100% out of the class. Anyway, I was wondering if someone could recommend an appropriate and CLEAR/SIMPLE paper for the project. Half the ones I look at have a huge equation followed by "it is clear from this equation that..." and it's really not.

    I am currently considering Large-Alphabet Quantum Key Distribution Using Energy-Time Entangled Bipartite States (http://www.pas.rochester.edu/~jhgroup/papers/alikhan-prl-07-02.pdf) because it confuses me a lot instead of completely. If no-one has any better suggestions soon I will start asking questions to help me understand the above paper.

    Thank you all in advance for your time and help.
