51. 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 ...

52. 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 ...

53. 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 ...

54. 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 ...

55. Efficient Generation of Correlated Photon Pairs in a Microstructure Fiber
Topic: Quantum Optics
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 ...

58. Migdall Responds II: More Correlated Photon Metrology History
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/1/1999
Author: Alan L Migdall
Abstract: I appreciate the comments of Mike Gruntman (Sept., page 80) concerning the history of using correlated pairs of particles(photons) to determine absolute detector quantum efficiencies. Unfortunately there is an overall misunderstanding of the techniqu ...

59. Migdall Responds
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/1/1999
Author: Alan L Migdall
Abstract: I thank Duane Jaecks for pointing out earlier origins of the first of the correlated photon metrology applications described in my article - absolute detector quantum efficiency. The work in these early references is helpful in putting the technique ...
