Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

Perfect discrimination between non-orthogonal states is forbidden by the laws of quantum mechanics. Several strategies to discriminate optimally between states of an arbitrary set exist, and many of these have been implemented in experiments using optical polarisation. In this paper we discuss maximum confidence measurements and their recent optical implementation.
