Polarization-entangled Photons and Quantum Dense Coding

Entangled states of particles form the cornerstone of the newly emerging field of quantum information: they are central to tests of nonlocality, have been proposed for use in quantum cryptography schemes, and would arise automatically in the operation of quantum computers. Polarization-entangled photons are preferable because they are easier to handle.
