Paper Abstract

We theoretically analyze the phase sensitivity of the Induced-Coherence Interferometer, including the case where the sensitivity is "boosted" into the bright input regime with coherent-light seeding. We find scaling which reaches below the shot noise limit, even when seeding the spatial mode which does not interact with the sample - or when seeding the undetected mode. Furthermore, the setup allows use of subtracted intensity measurements, instead of direct or homodyne measurements - a significant practical advantage. Bright, super-sensitive phase estimation of an object with different light fields for interaction and detection is possible.
