Paper Abstract

Exabytes of data are sent through the internet monthly, and the demand grows exponentially. Quantum measurement enables sensitivity beyond the shot noise, with a potential to minimize the energy and bandwidth required to transmit a bit. We developed a fully quantum-mechanical treatment of this measurement problem. We introduce new protocols of data exchange that are designed to take full advantage of quantum measurement, unlike legacy communication methods that seek to optimize classical measurements. We discuss the theoretical bounds of the new protocols and demonstrate proof of principle experiments.
