Quantum sensor miniaturization utilizing entangled photon signals

The resolution obtained by an imaging system utilizing separable photons can be achieved by an imaging system making use of entangled photons. Since resolution is not being increased from the separable-photon system, the imaging system utilizing entangled photons can take advantage of a smaller aperture. This results in a smaller and lighter system, which can be especially valuable in satellite imaging where weight and size play a vital role.
