  • Quantum Copiers

    September 13, 2013

    In this edition of the ARL Fellows Corner, Dr. Howard E. Brandt discusses quantum copiers--the theory, what they are, and how they can be used. According to the no-cloning theorem of quantum information theory, arbitrary quantum states cannot be cloned because of the linearity of quantum mechanics [1]. The security of quantum key distribution in quantum...
