Multi-pass classical vs. quantum strategies in lossy phase estimation

Quantum Information Science


The use of classical multiple-pass approach for phase estimation which mimics the behavior of the N00N states, is compared with quantum techniques. It is shown that in the presence of losses its performance is significantly worse than the one of the optimal quantum strategy.
