2002 (English)In: Physica Scripta, ISSN 0031-8949, E-ISSN 1402-4896, Vol. T102, 133-146 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

We present a comprehensive and self-consistent theory of relative-phase measurements and the associated Hermitian relative-phase operator of two harmonic oscillators. We find that since Nature does not favor any particular initial condition of the two oscillators, the relative-phase operator is not unique. We show that the relative-phase eigenstates; are maximally entangled. Therefore. most relative-phase operators lack a classical correspondence, even in the high-excitation limit. Furthermore, we find that the relative phase and the excitation number difference are noncommuting, noncanonical observables and we derive a commutation relation.
