|Abstract: ||We propose a method of resolving a spatially coherent signal, which contains on average just a single photon, against the background of local noise at the same frequency. The method is based on detecting the signal
simultaneously in several points more than a wavelength apart through the entangling interaction of the incoming photon with the quantum metamaterial sensor array. The interaction produces the spatially
correlated quantum state of the sensor array, characterised by a collective observable (e.g., total magnetic
moment), which is read out using a quantum nondemolition measurement. Weshow that the effects of local noise (e.g., fluctuations affecting the elements of the array) are suppressed relative to the signal from the
spatially coherent field of the incoming photon as ˜1/√N , where N is the number of array elements. The realisation of this approach in the microwave range would be especially useful and is within the reach of
current experimental techniques.|
