21. Single-photon detection efficiency up to 50% at 1310 nm with an InGaAs/InP avalanche diode gated at 1.25 GHz
Published: 4/10/2013
Authors: Alessandro Restelli, Joshua C Bienfang, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We describe a gated Geiger-mode single-photon avalanche diode (SPAD) detection system in which both gating and avalanche discrimination are implemented by coherent addition of discrete harmonics of the fundamental gate frequency. With amplitude a ...

22. Experimental test of an event-based corpuscular model modification as an alternative to quantum mechanics
Published: 2/13/2013
Authors: Giorgio Brida, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Marco Genovese, Alan L Migdall, Fabrizio Piacentini, Sergey V Polyakov, Paola Traina
Abstract: We present the first experimental test that distinguishes between an Event-Based Corpuscular Model (EBCM)9) of the interaction of photons with matter and quantum mechanics. The test looks at the interference that results as a single photon passes t ...

23. Experimental demonstration of a receiver beating the standard quantum limit for multiple nonorthogonal coherent-state discrimination
Published: 1/6/2013
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: The measurement of the state of a quantum system with inherent quantum uncertainty (noise) approaching the ultimate physical limits is of both technological and fundamental interest. Quantum noise prevents any mutually nonorthogonal quantum states ...

24. Adaptive measurements in nonorthogonal state discrimination
Published: 12/18/2012
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Adaptive measurements represent important resources in quantum information science and quan- tum technologies. They take advantage of the knowledge of partial measurements of the system to optimize subsequent measurements and perform tasks that are ...

25. Introduction to Journal of Modern Optics Special Issue on Single-Photon Devices and Applications
Published: 11/15/2012
Authors: Stefan Kuck, Alan L Migdall, Ivo P Degiovanni, Jessica Cheung
Abstract: This special issue accompanies the 5th international conference on single-photon technologies held at the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), Germany, in June 2011. This community has met every two years at national metrology institutes, sta ...

26. Extending single-photon optimized superconducting transition edge sensors beyond the single-photon counting regime
Published: 10/2/2012
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Brice R. Calkins, Nathan A Tomlin, Adriana Eleni Lita, Alan L Migdall, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: Typically, transition edge sensors resolve photon number of up to 10 or 20 photons, depending on the wavelength and TES design. We extend that dynamic range up to 1000 photons, while maintaining sub- shot noise detection process uncertainty of the n ...

27. Extending single-photon optimized superconducting transition edge sensors beyond the single-photon counting regime
Published: 10/2/2012
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Brice R. Calkins, Nathan A Tomlin, Adriana Eleni Lita, Alan L Migdall, Sae Woo Nam, Richard P Mirin
Abstract: Photon number resolving transition-edge sensors (TES) are the cutting-edge enabling technology for high quantum efficiency photon counting when the number of photons of an input state needs to be determined. The TES developed at NIST reliably sho ...

28. An algorithm for finding clusters with a known distribution and its application to photon-number resolution using a superconducting transition-edge sensor
Published: 7/20/2012
Authors: Zachary H Levine, Thomas Gerrits, Alan L Migdall, Daniel Victor Samarov, Brice R. Calkins, Adriana Eleni Lita, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: Improving photon-number resolution of single-photon sensitive detectors is important for many applications, as is extending the range of such detectors. Here we seek improved resolution for a particular Superconducting Transition-Edge Sensor (TES) t ...

29. Ancilla assisted calibration of a measuring apparatus
Published: 6/19/2012
Authors: Alan L Migdall, Giorgio Brida, L. Ciavarella, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Marco Genovese, M. G. Mingolla, M. G. A. Paris, Fabrizio Piacentini, S. V. Polyakov
Abstract: The rapid development of quantum systems has enabled a wide range of novel and innovative technologies, from quantum information processing to quantum etrology and imaging [1{13], mainly based on optical systems. Precise characterization techniques o ...

30. Time-domain measurements of afterpulsing in InGaAs/InP SPAD gated with sub-nanosecond pulses
Published: 5/28/2012
Authors: Alessandro Restelli, Joshua C Bienfang, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We experimentally investigate afterpulsing in an InGaAs single-photon avalanche diode (SPAD) operating in the biasing and sensing regime of periodic-gating techniques. These techniques support single-photon counting at rates in the 100 MHz range ...
