Quantum imaging - a relatively new section of quantum optics, which uses the unique properties of quantum correlations, such as quantum entanglement, in order to obtain images of objects with a resolution or any other image criterion superior to any analogs in classical optics.
The experimental quantum imaging schemes developed in the laboratory laboratory of the QPM can serve as the basis for devices:
- 'ghost' (also two-photon or correlation) imaging
- quantum lithography
- imaging with low noise (shot)
- quantum sensors and other devices.
Potentially quantum imaging can be used to store, transfer and process data in quantum computers, as well as to transmit encrypted information.
