31. 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 E 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 ...

32. 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 E 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 ...

33. 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 E 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 ...

34. 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 ...

35. 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 ...

36. 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 E 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 ...

37. 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 ...

38. 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 ...

39. 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 E 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 ...

40. 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 ...
