Abstract

The Wigner distribution provides complete information about a given quantum state.[1] In quantum optics, it has been suggested [2] and demonstrated [3] that it is possible to determine experimentally the quantum state of the light field by the determination of the Wigner distribution. This is of particular interest when it comes to the characterization of novel quantum states of light.
