State of polarization of a triphoton
The indeterminacy in the state of polarization of a combined state of three photons (a triphoton) may be pictured on a sphere. Krister Shalm, Rob Adamson and Aephraim Steinberg of University of Toronto's Department of Physics and Centre for Quantum Information and Quantum Control, published their work in Nature and have some very interesting pictures and animation on the squeezing of the state of polarization of a triphoton. I wonder how we could picture this with spinning arrows. I should have a closer look at it.
