51. Mode Expansion and Bragg Filtering Enable a High-Fidelity Fiber-Based Photon-Pair Source
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/9/2009
Authors: Alexander E. Ling, Jun Chen, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We report the development of a fiber-based single spatial mode source of photon-pairs where the efficiency of extracting photon-pairs is 15x better than a previous implementation [16]. This critical improvement in efficiency enabled a spectrally bri ...

52. Microstructure fiber-based source of photonic entanglement
Topic: Quantum Optics
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

53. Innovations in Maximum Likelihood Quantum State Tomography
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 10/9/2009
Authors: Scott C Glancy, Emanuel H Knill, Thomas Gerrits, Tracy S. Clement, Brice R. Calkins, Adriana E 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 ...

54. Waveguide source of correlated photon pairs for chip-scale quantum information processing
Topic: Quantum Optics
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 ...

55. Measuring high-order coherences of chaotic and coherent optical states
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 8/24/2009
Authors: Martin J Stevens, Burm Baek, Eric Dauler, Andrew J. Kerman, Richard J. Molnar, Scott A. Hamilton, Karl Berggren, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: We demonstrate a new approach to measuring high-order temporal coherences that uses a four-element superconducting nanowire single-photon detector (SNSPD) in which four independent, single-photon-sensitive elements are interleaved over a single spati ...

56. Realization of a single and closed Lambda-system in a room-temperature three-level coherently prepared resonant medium with narrow D 1 hyperfine splittings
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/9/2009
Authors: Ke Li, Lu Deng, M G Payne
Abstract: A single, closed three-state Ë-system using a parallel-polarization, co-propagating beam configuration in rubidium is investigated experimentally for efficient group velocity reduction at room temperature using electromagnetically induced transp ...

57. Improved implementation of the Alicki Van Ryn nonclassicality test for a single particle using Si detectors
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 4/15/2009
Authors: Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall, Giorgio Brida, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Marco Genovese, Fabrizio Piacentini, V Schettini, Nicolas Gisin
Abstract: Recently a test of nonclassicality for a single qubit was proposed R. Alicki and N. Van Ryn, J. Phys, A: Math. Theor. 41, 062001 2008. We present an optimized experimental realization of this test leading to a 46standard deviation violation of cl ...

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

59. Spectrally Bright and Broad Fiber-Based Heralded Single-Photon Source
Topic: Quantum Optics
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 ...

60. Experimental Test of Non-Local Realism Using a Fiber-Based Source of Polarization-Entangled Photon Pairs
Topic: Quantum Optics
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 ...
