If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at forums@fqxi.org with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Abstract: Entanglement unlocks many applications in quantum communication, such as the highest possible level of security in quantum key distribution. As photons are inevitably lost or decohered over longer distances, it seems obvious that using the full spectrum of photonic degrees of freedom is desirable. In addition to more encodable bits per photon, entanglement in high dimensions also yields a surprising resistance to noise. This comes at the expense of more complicated measurements that in themselves can contribute to the overall noise in the data, leading to an interesting optimisation. In this talk I will discuss the origin of noise resistance and how it can be practically realised in different photonic implementations using entangled photons.
