### In science:

But without additional loss the PDL can’t be balanced).
EPR Test with Photons and Kaons: Analogies
Hence PDL in correlation measurements does destroy irreversibly some of the correlation.
EPR Test with Photons and Kaons: Analogies
It is formally identical to the equation (14) which describes PDL in ﬁbers.
EPR Test with Photons and Kaons: Analogies
Second, contrary to the PDL of optical ﬁbers, the kaon decay can’t be reduced nor compensated.
EPR Test with Photons and Kaons: Analogies
Indeed, the decay, contrary to the strangeness mixing, reduces irreversibly the quantum correlation between the two particles (Likewise PDL, but not birefringence, reduces the correlation between the photons.
EPR Test with Photons and Kaons: Analogies
The situation for kaons is similar except for the already mentioned intrinsic effective birefringence (due to strangeness mixing) and the effective PDL (due to kaon decay).
EPR Test with Photons and Kaons: Analogies
Double dash line is the movement of Bloch vector due to birefringence and single dash line is the combined effect of Birefringence and PDL (state of non absorbed photons; eq. 11).
EPR Test with Photons and Kaons: Analogies
Polarization Dependent Losses (PDL) is a differential attenuation between two orthogonal polarization modes.
Quantum Cryptography
PDL is usually stable, but if connected to a ﬁber with some birefringence, the relation between the polarization state and the PDL may ﬂuctuate, producing random outcomes (Elamari et al. 1998).
Quantum Cryptography
PDL cannot be described by a unitary operator acting in the polarization state space (but it is of course unitary in a larger space (Huttner et al. 1996a).
Quantum Cryptography
Notice that they all cross the line w = −1 also known as the Phantom Divide Line (PDL).
Accelerating Universe: Observational Status and Theoretical Implications
Even though these best ﬁt forms appear very different at redshifts z > 0.5 (mainly due to the two derivatives involved in obtaining w(z ) from dL (z )), in the range 0 < z < 0.5 they appear to have an interesting common feature: they all cross the line w = −1 also known as the Phantom Divide Line (PDL).
Accelerating Universe: Observational Status and Theoretical Implications
Even though the crossing of the PDL is realized at best ﬁt for both the FG and TG datasets it is not realized at best ﬁt when the SNLS is used.
Accelerating Universe: Observational Status and Theoretical Implications
For an arbitrary sign of V (φ) the above restriction does not apply but it is still impossible for w to cross the PDL w = −1 in a continous manner.
Accelerating Universe: Observational Status and Theoretical Implications
It is therefore interesting to consider the available quintessence and phantom scalar ﬁeld models and compare the consistency with data of the predicted forms of w(z ) among themselves and with arbitrary parametrizations of w(z ) that cross the PDL.
