21. Demonstrating a High Symmetric Single-Photon Heralding Efficiency in Spontaneous Parametric Downconversion
Published: 5/6/2013
Authors: Marcelo Pereira, Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Boris L. Glebov, Jingyun Fan, Sae Woo Nam, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We demonstrate a symmetric, single-spatial mode, single-photon heralding efficiency of 84% for a type-II spontaneous parametric downconversion process. This achievement of high efficiency, single-spatial mode collection is key to enabling many quantu ...

22. Storage and retrieval of excitations on a long-lived spin transition in a rare-earth ion-doped crystal
Published: 4/22/2013
Authors: Elizabeth A Goldschmidt, Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall, Sarah E. Beavan, Matthew J. Sellars
Abstract: We demonstrate coherent generation, storage, and retrieval of excitations on a long-lived spin transition via spontaneous Raman scattering in a rare-earth ion-doped crystal. This is the first demonstration of its kind in a solid and an enabli ...

23. 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 ...

24. 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 corpus- cular model of the interaction of photons with matter and quantum mechanics. The test looks at the interference that results as a single photon passes through ...

25. 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 ...

26. 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 ...

27. 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 ...

28. Preface to Proceedings of the International Conference Quantum Theory: Reconsideration of Foundations-6 (QTRF6) held in Vaxjo, Sweden, 11-14 June 2012
Published: 12/18/2012
Authors: Harald Atmanspacher, Andrei Khrennikov, Alan L Migdall, Sergey V Polyakov
Abstract: A wide spectrum of topics was presented in talks at this conference: quantum foundations (especially, Heisenberg's uncertainty relation and its generalizations) and information, mathematical formalism of quantum theory, philosophy, methodology of m ...

29. 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 ...

30. 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 ...
