Digital Quantum Estimation

Quantum Metrology calculates the ultimate precision of all estimation strategies, measuring what is their root mean-square error (RMSE) and their Fisher information. Here, instead, we ask how many bits of the parameter we can recover, namely we derive an information-theoretic quantum metrology. In this setting we redefine "Heisenberg bound" and "standard quantum limit" (the usual benchmarks in quantum estimation theory), and show that the former can be attained only by sequential strategies or parallel strategies that employ entanglement among probes, whereas parallel-separable strategies are limit ...

Dynamics and biomechanical properties of the eye structures and their application in ophthalmology

Eye globe and eye structures undergoes continuous fast movements and deformations due to blinking, eye muscles activity and blood pulsation inside blood vessels of the eye. These movements and deformations play important role both in the eye refraction and in variability of optical properties of the eye. Deformations of different eye structures are highly correlated with quasiperiodical blood pulsation in the eye tissues. Response of the eye structures or the whole eye globe on different mechanical stimuli depends directly on b ...
