Abstract

We present the first experimental realization of the quantum illumination protocol proposed by Lloyd [ Science 321 1463 (2008)] and S. Tan et al. [ Phys. Rev. Lett. 101 253601 (2008)], achieved in a simple feasible experimental scheme based on photon-number correlations. A main achievement of our result is the demonstration of a strong robustness of the quantum protocol to noise and losses that challenges some widespread wisdom about quantum technologies.
