Dual quantum nondemolition measurements via successive soliton collisions

Quantum mechanics allows quantum nondemolition (QND) variables to be measured without being changed. This requires QND variables to be initially in an eigenstate and measurement backaction noise to be directed into conjugate variables. Experimental demonstrations thus require two measurements: the first to collapse variables toward an eigenstate and the second to show results identical to the first. Here, we report results from two successive soliton-collision QND measurements that optical correlation measurements show to be nearly identical.
