Project Description

This project will explore a new technique for illuminating distant objects conditionally, such that the object being illuminated cannot tell that it is being monitored.

The technique works based on postselecting thermal light. A detection result selects when the thermal light is brighter or dimmer than average. This can be done in principle without any limit on the brightness of the selected light, in marked contrast to other techniques such as ghost imaging, where the postselected light is limited to a doubling of its intensity.
