51. 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 ...

52. 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 ...

53. 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 ...

55. On-demand Single Photons from Individual Epitaxial Quantum Dots
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 10/24/2005
Authors: Richard P Mirin, Martin J Stevens
Abstract: We will describe our group's efforts to use epitaxial InGaAs/GaAs quantum dots as sources of on-demand single photons and indistinguishable single photons. We have demonstrated second order intensity correlation measurements, g^u2^{tau}, with g^u ...

56. High resolution, high collection efficiency in numerical aperture increasing lens microscopy of individual quantum dots
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 8/9/2005
Authors: Zhiheng H Liu, B. B. Goldberg, Stephen B Ippolito, Anthony N Vamivakas, M. S. Unlu, Richard P Mirin
Abstract: We demonstrate the application of a subsurface solid immersion technique to the photoluminescence spectroscopy of individual quantum dots. Contrasted with the conventional solid immersion microscopy, we used a numerical aperture increasing lens and m ...

57. Temperature-dependent, single quantum dot single photon statistics
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/16/2004
Author: Richard P Mirin
Abstract: We describe temperature-dependent photon antibunching measurements from single InGaAs/GaAs quantum dots. The second order intensity correlation demonstrates single emitter emission up to 120 K and nonclassical light emission to 135 K.

58. Differences Explained in Correlated-Photon Metrology Techniques
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/1/1999
Author: Alan L Migdall

59. 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 ...

60. 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 ...
