21. Experimental demonstration of a receiver beating the standard quantum limit for multiple nonorthogonal coherent-state discrimination
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 1/6/2013
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: The measurement of the state of a quantum system with inherent quantum uncertainty (noise) approaching the ultimate physical limits is of both technological and fundamental interest. Quantum noise prevents any mutually nonorthogonal quantum states ...

22. Adaptive measurements in nonorthogonal state discrimination
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/18/2012
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Adaptive measurements represent important resources in quantum information science and quan- tum technologies. They take advantage of the knowledge of partial measurements of the system to optimize subsequent measurements and perform tasks that are ...

23. Preface to Proceedings of the International Conference Quantum Theory: Reconsideration of Foundations-6 (QTRF6) held in Vaxjo, Sweden, 11-14 June 2012
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/18/2012
Authors: Harald Atmanspacher, Andrei Khrennikov, Alan L Migdall, Sergey V Polyakov
Abstract: A wide spectrum of topics was presented in talks at this conference: quantum foundations (especially, Heisenberg's uncertainty relation and its generalizations) and information, mathematical formalism of quantum theory, philosophy, methodology of m ...

24. Introduction to Journal of Modern Optics Special Issue on Single-Photon Devices and Applications
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/15/2012
Authors: Stefan Kuck, Alan L Migdall, Ivo P Degiovanni, Jessica Cheung
Abstract: This special issue accompanies the 5th international conference on single-photon technologies held at the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), Germany, in June 2011. This community has met every two years at national metrology institutes, sta ...

25. Manipulating the Color and Shape of Single Photons
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/1/2012
Authors: Michael G. Raymer, Kartik A Srinivasan

26. Transition edge sensors with low jitter and fast recovery times
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/30/2012
Authors: Antia A. Lamas-Linares, Nathan A Tomlin, Brice R. Calkins, Adriana Eleni Lita, Thomas Gerrits, Joern Beyer, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: Superconducting transition edge sensors (TES) for single photon detection have been shown to have almost perfect quantum efficiency (98%) at a wide range of wavelengths. Their high quantum efficiency combined with their ability to intrisically me ...

27. Single-photon and photon-number-resolving detectors
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 4/20/2012
Authors: Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam, Mark Itzler
Abstract: Several important advances were reported in single-photon detectors and photon-number-resolving detectors in 2011. New materials with smaller superconducting gaps were demonstrated for superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) tha ...

28. Conclusive quantum steering with superconducting transition-edge sensors
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 1/10/2012
Authors: Devin H Smith, Marcelo de Almeida, Gillett Geoff, Branciard Cyril, Allesandro Fedrizzi, Weinhold J Till, Adriana Eleni Lita, Brice R. Calkins, Thomas Gerrits, Wiseman H, Sae Woo Nam, Andrew G White
Abstract: Quantum steering allows two parties to verify shared entanglement even if one measurement device is untrusted. A conclusive demonstration of steering through the violation of a steering inequality is of considerable fundamental interest and opens up ...

29. M-ary state phase-shift keying discrimination below the homodyne limit
Topic: Quantum Optics
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 ...

30. Quantum Frequency Translation of Single-Photon States
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/1/2011
Authors: Kartik A Srinivasan, Michael G. Raymer
Abstract: N/A
