"Heisenberg-limited interferometry with twin boson modes: not such a bad idea after all..."
In this talk, we'll introduce the fundamental limits to interferometric (and spectroscopic) measurements and discuss the particular technique of Bayesian twin-mode interferometry, introduced by Holland and Burnett [1,2]. We will present new results of numerical simulations that show that, contrary to what had been predicted thereafter [3], experimental feasibility is quite promising, indeed.
