David Voss at APS Physics writes: ''Nonlocality—the entanglement of one object with another at a distance—is a powerful way to achieve quantum information processing. However, quantum mechanics is tethered by a “no-signaling” principle, that is, these correlations cannot be used to transmit information arbitrarily quickly from one point to another.

The recently founded Center for Optics and Photonics of the Universidad de Concepción, Chile, seeks to expand its theoretical, experimental and applied research activities in the fields of

- Experimental and theoretical Quantum Information Sciences

- Optical Traps (Optical Tweezers)

- Remote Sensing Technologies (DOAS, DIAL, LIDAR, Satellite Remote Sensing, Airborne based optical instrumentation)

We study the noise correlations of one-dimensional binary Bose mixtures, as a probe of their quantum phases. In previous work, we found a rich structure of many-body phases in such mixtures, such as paired and counterflow superfluidity. Here we investigate the signature of these phases in the noise correlations of the atomic cloud after time-of-flight expansion, using both Luttinger liquid theory and the time-evolving block decimation (TEBD) method. We find that paired and counterflow superfluidity exhibit distinctive features in the noise spectra.
