41. 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 ...

42. Experimental Test of Non-Local Realism Using a Fiber-Based Source of Polarization-Entangled Photon Pairs
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 3/25/2008
Authors: Jingyun Fan, M D. Eisaman, Elizabeth A. Goldschmidt, J Chen, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We describe an experimental test of local realistic and non-local realistic theories using polarization-entangled two-photon singlet states created using a fiber-based polarization Sagnac interferometer. We show a violation of Bell s inequality in th ...

43. Quantum state tomography of a fiber-based source of polarization-entangled photon pairs
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 12/20/2007
Authors: Jingyun Fan, M D. Eisaman, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We report an experimental demonstration of a bright highfidelity single-mode-optical-fiber source of polarization-entangled photon pairs. The source takes advantage of single-mode fiber optics, highly nonlinear microstructure fiber, judicious phas ...

44. Introduction to Journal of Modern Optics Special Issue on Single Photon: Sources, Detectors, Applications and Measurement Methods
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 1/20/2007
Authors: J Cheung, Alan L Migdall, Stefania Castelletto
Abstract: In October 2005, a 2-day follow up workshop, Single photon: sources, detectors, applications and measurement methods, was held at the NPL (National Physical Laboratory, UK). The focus for this workshop was to report on the key developments since the ...

45. Reduced Deadtime and Higher Rate Photon-Counting Detection Using a Multiplexed Detector Array
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 1/20/2007
Authors: Stefania Castelletto, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, V Schettini, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We present a scheme for a photon-counting detection system that can be operated at incident photon rates higher than otherwise possible by suppressing the effects of detector deadtime. The method uses an array of N detectors and a 1-by-N optical swit ...

46. Achieving Higher Photon Counting Rates Using Multiplexed Detectors
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 8/13/2006
Authors: Stefania Castelletto, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Alan L Migdall, Sergey V Polyakov, V Schettini
Abstract: As the quantum information field advances, the need for improved single-photon devices is becoming more critical. Quantum information systems are often limited by detector deadtime to count rates of a few MHz, at best. We present a multiplexed detect ...

47. Efficient Generation of Correlated Photon Pairs in a Microstructure Fiber
Topic: Quantum Information
Published: 12/15/2005
Authors: Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall, L Wang
Abstract: We report efficient generation of correlated photon pairs through degenerate four-wave mixing in microstructure fibers. With 735.7 nm pump pulses producing conjugate signal (688.5 nm) and idler (789.8 nm) photons in an 1.8 m microstructure fiber, we ...
