A New Quantum Eraser Using Hyperentangled Photons

Draven W. Houser
A new type of quantum eraser using hyperentangled photon pairs is proposed. Whereas a typical quantum eraser makes use of photons that are entangled in a single quantum state, usually in polarization, our new quantum eraser exploits entanglements in both polarization and momentum states. In a typical quantum eraser one gains "which- path" information of one photon by changing the polarization measurement of the other. This results in "erasing" the interference pattern previously obtained through indistinguishably of paths.
