Abstract

A polarized photon with well-defined orbital angular momentum that emerges from a Mach–Zehnder interferometer (MZI) is shown to seemingly circumvent wave–particle duality constraints. For certain phase differences between the MZI arms, this pattern yields both reliable which-path information and high phase sensitivity.
