(a) Suppose we split a laser into two beams "A" and "B". Is it at all possible to do something to one of the beams, so that, when we bring them back to overlap at the detector(s), they will follow the statistics of two-photon systems?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(b) If we use two separate lasers that are phase-locked by external means, will they follow two-photon statistics if they overlap around the detectors?

The kind of staistics I am asking about is where you have detection amplitudes with terms like:

|a1> |b2> + |a2> |b1>.
