Paper Abstract

Entangled-photon beams, generated for example by spontaneous parametric down-conversion from a nonlinear crystal, may be used to implement holography based on quantum interferometry. One beam is split into a probe component that illuminates the object and another serving as a reference, and is detected with no spatial resolution. The other beam is measured with full spatial resolution. The rate of two-photon coincidence contains full holographic information on the object. Since the beams are not monochromatic, this is a form of higher-order white light holography.
