31. Realization of a programmable two-qubit quantum processor
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 11/15/2009
Authors: David Hanneke, Jonathan Home, John D. Jost, Jason Amini, Dietrich G Leibfried, David J Wineland
Abstract: The universal quantum computer is a device that could simulate any physical system and represents a major goal for the field of quantum information science. Algorithms performed on such a device are predicted to offer significant gains for some impor ...

32. Preparation of Dicke States in an Ion Chain
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 11/2/2009
Authors: David Hume, Chin W. Chou, Till P Rosenband, David J Wineland
Abstract: We have investigated theoretically and experimentally a method for preparing Dicke states in trapped atomic ions. We consider a linear chain of N ion qubits that is prepared in a particular Fock state of motion, jmi. The m phonons are removed by ap ...

33. Microstructure fiber-based source of photonic entanglement
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 11/1/2009
Authors: Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall, Jun Chen, Elizabeth A Goldschmidt, Alexander E. Ling
Abstract: We review the development of photonic entanglement via four-wave mixing in microstructure fiber

34. Innovations in Maximum Likelihood Quantum State Tomography
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 10/9/2009
Authors: Scott C Glancy, Emanuel H Knill, Thomas Gerrits, Tracy S. Clement, Brice R. Calkins, Adriana Eleni Lita, Aaron J Miller, Alan L Migdall, Sae Woo Nam, Richard P Mirin
Abstract: At NIST we are engaged in an experiment whose goal is to create superpositions of optical coherent states (such superpositions are sometimes called "Schroedinger cat" states). We use homodyne detection to measure the light, and we apply ma ...

35. Ultra-cold mechanical resonators coupled to atoms in an optical lattice
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 9/17/2009
Authors: Andrew Geraci, John E Kitching
Abstract: We propose an experiment utilizing an array of cooled micro-cantilevers coupled to a sample of ultra-cold atoms trapped near a micro-fabricated surface. The cantilevers allow individual lattice site addressing for atomic state control and readout, an ...

36. Energy Decay in Josephson Qubits from Non-equilibrium Quasiparticles
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 8/26/2009
Authors: Jose Alberto Aumentado, John M Martinis, M Ansmann
Abstract: We calculate the energy decay rate of Josephson qubits and superconducting resonators from non-equilibrium quasiparticles. The decay rates from experiments are shown to be consistent with our predictions based on a prior measurement of the quasipar ...

37. Waveguide source of correlated photon pairs for chip-scale quantum information processing
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 8/26/2009
Authors: Jun Chen, Aaron Pearlman, Alexander E. Ling, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We present a systematic study of a correlated photon-pair source based on a periodically-poled KTiOPO4 (PPKTP) waveguide. The waveguide was fabricated on a KTiOPO4 crystal supporting type-II parametric down-conversion. In addition, periodic poling ...

38. Experimental Implementation of Quantum Entanglement and Hyper-Entanglement With a Fiber-Based Two-Photon Source
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 9/5/2008
Authors: Jun Chen, M D. Eisaman, Elizabeth A Goldschmidt, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall

39. Improved multiplexed Infrared Single Photon Detectors
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 8/11/2008
Authors: Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall, V Schettini, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Giorgio Brida, F Piacentini
Abstract: We discuss a scheme for a photon-counting detection system that overcomes the difficulties of photon-counting at high rates at telecom wavelengths. Our method uses an array of N detectors and a 1-by-N optical switch with a control circuit to direct i ...

40. Spectrally Bright and Broad Fiber-Based Heralded Single-Photon Source
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 7/29/2008
Authors: Elizabeth A Goldschmidt, M D. Eisaman, Jingyun Fan, Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We present the first experimental characterization of a heralded single-photon source based on spontaneous four-wave-mixing in a single-mode microstructure fiber. We measure the second-order correlation function, g(2)(0), to be far below the classi ...
