Experimental phase estimation enhanced by machine learning

Nicolò Spagnolo

Sapienza Universita di Roma

Nicolò Spagnolo obtained his PhD in 2012 in Physical Sciences of Matter, with research focusing on multiphoton quantum optical states, with applications in fundamental tests of quantum mechanics and in quantum information protocols. He has been a post-doctoral research at Sapienza Università di Roma, Italy, where he currently holds a position as Temporary Researcher. After his PhD, his research activities have been focused on the experimental implementation of multiphoton quantum information and quantum simulations protocols. These include the implementation of Boson Sampling and of validation techniques with integrated photonics, and quantum phase estimation experiments.


Quantum metrology represents one of the most promising applications of quantum theory. Its main objective is to measure a set of unknown physical parameters by exploiting quantum resources to obtain enhanced precision with... [ view full abstract ]
