11. Sub-wavelength interference of thermal light with photon-number resolving detection
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/10/2014
Authors: Yanhua (Yanhua) Zhai, Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We examine the spatial correlation of thermal-light diffracted through a double-slit using photon-number-resolved detection to directly measure high-order correlations. We observe sinusoidal modulations of the spatial coherence in the diffracted ligh ...

12. Environment-assisted quantum control of a solid state spin via 2-color coherent dark states
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/7/2014
Authors: Jacob M Taylor, Jack Hansom, Carsten Schulte, Claire Le Gall, Clemens Matthiesen, Edmund Clarke, Maxime Hugues, Mete Atature
Abstract: Semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) offer an efficient and scalable interface between single spins and optical photons. However, the solid-state environment of the QD represents an inherent source of noise, generally considered detrimental to coherent c ...

13. Domain-engineered PPLN for entangled photon generation and other quantum information applications
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/1/2014
Authors: Paulina S Kuo, Jason S. Pelc, Oliver T Slattery, Lijun Ma, Xiao Tang
Abstract: We describe the design and application of domain-engineered periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN) for use as a source of entangled photons and for other tools in quantum information and communications. By specially designing and controlling the P ...

14. Single-Photon Sources and Detectors Book: Chapter 1: Introduction
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/29/2013
Authors: Joshua C Bienfang, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall, Sergey V Polyakov
Abstract: In the beginning there was light. And it was good. Not long thereafter people began to look for a comprehensive understanding of its nature. While the publication record starts o a little spotty, in the fth century BC the Greek philosopher Empedocl ...

15. Imaging topological edge states in silicon photonics
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 10/20/2013
Authors: Mohammad Hafezi, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall, Jacob M Taylor
Abstract: Systems with topological oder exhibit exotic phenomena including fractional statistics. While most systems with topological order have been electronic, advances in our understanding of synthetic gauge fields have enabled realization of to ...

16. High quantum-efficiency photon-number-resolving detector for photonic on-chip information processing
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/18/2013
Authors: Brice R. Calkins, Paolo L Mennea, Adriana E Lita, Benjamin Metcalf, Steven Kolthammer, Antia A. Lamas-Linares, Justin Spring, Peter C Humphreys, Richard P Mirin, James Gates, Peter Smith, Ian Walmsley, Thomas Gerrits, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: The integrated optical circuit is a promising architecture for the realization of complex quantum optical states and information networks. One element that is required for many of these applications is a high-efficiency photon detector capable of ...

17. Deterministic Generation of Single-Photons via Multiplexing Repetitive Parametric Downconversions
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/17/2013
Authors: Boris L. Glebov, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We show through Monte Carlo simulation, under realistic experimental conditions that a system which is composed of a just a few repetitive spontaneous parametric downconversion processes can approximate an on-demand single-photon source.

18. Mode reconstruction of a light field by multi-photon statistics
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/15/2013
Authors: Elizabeth A. Goldschmidt, Fabrizio Piacentini, I. Ruo Berchera, Sergey V Polyakov, Silke Peters, Stefan Kuck, Giorgio Brida, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Alan L Migdall, Marco Genovese
Abstract: Knowing the underlying number and structure of occupied modes of a light field plays a crucial role in minimizing loss and decoherence of quantum information. Typically, full characterization of the mode structure involves a series of several separ ...

19. Implementation of generalized quantum measurements for unambiguous discrimination of multiple nonorthogonal coherent states
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/18/2013
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Generalized quantum measurements can perform perfect discrimination of nonorthogonal states by allowing for inconclusive results, task which is impossible performing only measurements with definite outcomes. We demonstrate the realization of genera ...

20. Nanosecond-scale timing jitter in transition edge sensors at telecom and visible wavelengths
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/10/2013
Authors: Antia A. Lamas-Linares, Brice R. Calkins, Nathan A Tomlin, Thomas Gerrits, Adriana E Lita, Joern Beyer, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: Transition edge sensors (TES) have the highest reported efficiencies (> 98%) for single photon detection in the visible and near infrared. Experiments in quantum information and foundations of physics that rely on this efficiency have started incor ...
