Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

We study the Fourier relationship between angle and orbital angular momentum of entangled photons. Spatial light modulators allow us to define and control the spatial mode measurement state. We observe strong quantum correlations, establishing that angular position and momentum distributions between the photons are related as conjugate Fourier pairs.
