51. Nanowire-based superconducting single-photon detectors for infrared single-photon source characterization
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/2/2008
Authors: Martin J Stevens, Burm Baek, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam, Robert Hadfield
Abstract: Single-photon sources and detectors enable a wide range of applications, from quantum information technologies to fundamental tests of quantum optics. Semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) have emerged as promising single-photon sources, and recent work h ...

52. Designing high electron mobility transistor heterostructures with quantum dots for efficient, number-resolving photon detection
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/1/2008
Authors: Mary A. Rowe, Eric Gansen, M. Greene, Danna Rosenberg, Todd E Harvey, Mark Su, Robert Hadfield, Sae Woo Nam, Richard P Mirin
Abstract: We describe the design of the epitaxial layers for an efficient, photon-number-determining detector that utilizes a layer of self-assembled quantum dots as an optically addressable gate in a field-effect transistor. Our design features a dedicated ab ...

53. 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 Anne 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 ...

54. Quantum state tomography of a fiber-based source of polarization-entangled photon pairs
Topic: Quantum Optics
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 ...

55. An Optical Fiber-Based Source of Polarization-Entangled Photon Pairs
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/10/2007
Authors: Jingyun Fan, M D. Eisaman, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We describe an achromatic, phase-stable, broadband source of polarization-entangled photon pairs with high spectral brightness that uses four-wave mixing in a fiber Sagnac interferometer. We achieved a polarization-entangled two-photon coincidence r ...

56. A Broadband High Spectral Brightness Fiber-Based Two-Photon Source
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 3/19/2007
Authors: Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: After characterizing the Raman scattering in a fused silica polarization-maintaining microstructure optical fiber, we built a fiber-based two-photon light source of high spectral brightness, broad spectral range, and very low noise background at room ...

57. Introduction to Journal of Modern Optics Special Issue on Single Photon: Sources, Detectors, Applications and Measurement Methods
Topic: Quantum Optics
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 ...

58. Reduced Deadtime and Higher Rate Photon-Counting Detection Using a Multiplexed Detector Array
Topic: Quantum Optics
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 ...

59. Achieving Higher Photon Counting Rates Using Multiplexed Detectors
Topic: Quantum Optics
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 ...

60. Optimizing Single-Photon Source Heralding Efficiency and Detection Efficiency Metrology at 1550 nm Using Periodically Poled Lithium Niobate
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 3/23/2006
Authors: Stefania Castelletto, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, V Schettini, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We explore the feasibility of using high-efficiency periodically-poled crystals to produce photon pairs for photon-counting detector calibrations at 1550 nm. The goal is the development of an appropriate PDC source at telecom wavelengths meeting the ...
