2000 (English)In: Physical Review Letters, ISSN 0031-9007, E-ISSN 1079-7114, Vol. 85, no 24, 5013-5017 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Linearly polarized classical light can be expressed in a vertical and a horizontal component. Geometrically rotating vertically polarized light by 90 degrees will convert it to the orthogonal horizontal polarization. We have experimentally generated a two-photon state of light which evolves into an orthogonal state upon geometrical rotation by 60 degrees. Rotating this state by an additional 60 degrees will yield a state which is mutually orthogonal to the first two states. Generalizing this procedure, one can generate N + 1 mutually orthogonal N-photon states that cyclicly evolve from one to another upon a geometric rotation by 180/(N + 1) degrees.
