151. Optimizing the Storage and Retrieval Efficiency of a Solid-State Quantum Memory Through Tailored State Preparation
Published: Date unknown
Authors: M D. Eisaman, Sergey V Polyakov, M Hohensee, Jingyun Fan, P Hemmer, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We theoretically investigate the feasibility of using spectral hole burning in Pr3+: Y2SiO5 to prepare an ensemble of Pr3+ ions with a spectral distribution optimized for use as a quantum memory for single-photon states. We introduce figures of meri ...

152. Quantum Tomography of a Bright, Polarization-Entangled Photon Pair Source Based on a Fiber Sagnac Interferometer
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Jingyun Fan, M D. Eisaman, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: The success of many quantum-information applications demands entangled photon pairs emitted at a high rate, and in a single spatial mode with narrow spectral bandwidth to allow high two-photon interference visibility in creation and propagation. Here ...

153. Raman Suppression in a Microstructure Fiber With Dual Laser Pumps
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Coupling two frequency-conjugate laser pulses into an optical fiber, we observe at the middle frequency either enhanced photon generation via four-wave mixing or suppressed Raman emission depending on the phase difference between the two pumps.

154. Real Time Data Acquisition Platform for Pulsed Measurements
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: We present an inexpensive and simple data acquisition platform based on Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) designed to acquire and characterize fast digital or analog electrical signal real time for processing on a generic personal computer. Whil ...

155. Using Correlated Photons to Measure Polarization Mode Dispersion with Attosecond Resolution
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Alan L Migdall, G Jaeger, A V Sergienko
Abstract: We describe the status of a highly stable dual scale technique for measuring polarization mode dispersion (PMD) using two-photons produced via parametric down conversion. The method uses a two-photon interference to observe relative propagation time ...
