Abstract

We propose simple experiments in cavity quantum electrodynamics leading, for the first time, to the measurement of negative values of the Wigner function of an electromagnetic field. We also show that the realization of a controlled-not gate within the framework of cavity QED is a special case of our proposal, and is equivalent to the measurement of the Wigner function of a one-photon field at the origin of phase space.
