31. Extending single-photon optimized superconducting transition edge sensors beyond the single-photon counting regime
Published: 5/6/2012
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Brice R. Calkins, Nathan A Tomlin, Adriana Eleni Lita, Alan L Migdall, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: We illuminate a photon-number-resolving transition edge sensor with strong pulses of light containing up to 6.7 million photons (0.85 pJ per pulse). These bright pulses heat the sensor far beyond its transition edge into the normal resistance reg ...

32. M-ary state phase-shift keying discrimination below the homodyne limit
Published: 12/22/2011
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Sergey V Polyakov, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We investigate a strategy for M-ary discrimination of nonorthogonal phase states with error rates below the homodyne limit. This strategy uses feed forward to update a reference field and Signal nulling for the state discriminati ...

33. Coalescence of Single Photons Emitted by Disparate Single Photon Sources: The Example of InAs Quantum Dots and Parametric Down-Conversion Sources
Published: 10/5/2011
Authors: Sergey V Polyakov, Andreas Muller, Alexander E. Ling, Natalia Borjemscaia Rutter, Edward B. (Edward) Flagg, Edward Van Keuren, Alan L Migdall, Glenn Scott Solomon
Abstract: In quantum mechanics, particles in identical states are indistinguishable, giving rise to effects with no classical analog. Single photons produced by fundamentally dissimilar physical processes will in general not be indistinguishable. We show how ...

34. Extending single-photon optimized superconducting transition edge sensors beyond the single-photon counting regime
Published: 9/19/2011
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 number counting. The TES developed at NIST reliably show system detection efficiencies of more than 95%, and even ap ...

35. State Discriminiation Signal Nulling Receivers
Published: 9/6/2011
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Sergey V Polyakov, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Optimized state-discrimination receiver strategies for nonorthogonal states can improve the capacity of the communication channels operating with error rates below the ones corresponding to conventional receivers. Coherent signal-nulling receivers us ...

36. Single-Photon Sources and Detectors
Published: 7/27/2011
Authors: M D. Eisaman, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall, Sergey V Polyakov
Abstract: We review the current status of single-photon-source and single-photon-detector technologies operating at wavelengths from the ultraviolet to the infrared. We discuss applications of these technologies to quantum communication, a field that is curre ...

37. Generating a Frequency-Bin Entangled Comb of Photon Pairs via Four-Wave Mixing in a Silicon-on-Insulator Microring Resonator
Published: 6/15/2011
Authors: Jun Chen, Zachary H Levine, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We present a quantum theory for generation of frequency-bin entangled comb of photon pairs via four-wave mixing in a Silicon-on-Insulator microring resonator. We also provide design principles of such a microring through extensive numerical simulat ...

38. Indistinguishability of single photons from dissimilar single-photon sources
Published: 6/14/2011
Authors: Sergey V Polyakov, Glenn Scott Solomon, Edward B. (Edward) Flagg, Alan L Migdall, Andreas Muller
Abstract: In quantum mechanics, particles in identical states are indistinguishable, giving rise to effects with no classical analog. For instance, the bosonic nature of light insures that upon interference two indistinguishable photons will coalesce into a s ...

39. Silicon-on-Insulator Microresonator-based Source of Frequency-Bin Entangled Comb of Photon Pairs
Published: 5/1/2011
Authors: Jun Chen, Zachary H Levine, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We present a quantum theory for frequency-bin entangled photon-pair generation via four-wave mixing from a Silicon-on-Insulator microresonator. We also provide design principles for such a microresonator through extensive numerical simulations.

40. Polarization-Entangled Photon Pairs From a Periodically Poled Cystalline Waveguide
Published: 3/24/2011
Authors: Zachary H Levine, Jingyun Fan, Jun Chen, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: A proposal is made for the generation of polarization-entangled photon pairs from a periodically poled crystal. The theory is formulated in terms of colinear propagation for application to waveguides. The key feature of the theory is the use of typ ...
