Quantifying Information via Structural Complexity in Optical Beams Using Shannon Entropy (JTu5A.9)

Presenter: JIACHI YE, The George Washington University

We propose a new definition of classical Shannon information that is detached from a particular alphabet and scales with the complexity of the optical field. We experimentally validate these results by reconstructing the wavefront topology.
