Wanted: Large Litterbox

“‘The idea of the experiment was proposed in 2003 by the group of Professor Timothy Ralph of the University of Queensland, Australia. In essence, we cause interference of two ‘cats’ on a beam splitter. This leads to an entangled state in the two output channels of that beam splitter. In one of these channels, a special detector is placed. In the event this detector shows a certain result, a ‘cat’ is born in the second output whose energy is more than twice that of the initial one.’

The Lvovsky group tested this method in the lab. In the experiment, they successfully converted a pair of negative squeezed ‘Schrodinger cats’ of amplitude 1.15 to a single positive ‘cat’ of amplitude 1.85. They generated several thousand such enlarged ‘cats’ in their experiment.”
