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

12. Multi-Spatial-Mode Single-Beam Quadrature Squeezed States of Light from Four-Wave Mixing in Hot Rubidium Vapor
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 10/24/2011
Authors: Neil V. (Neil Vladimir) Corzo Trejo, Alberto Manuel Marino, Kevin M. Jones, Paul D Lett
Abstract: We present experimental results on the generation of multi-spatial-mode, single-beam, quadrature squeezed light using four-wave mixing in hot Rb vapor. Squeezing and phase-sensitive deamplification are observed over a range of powers and detunings ne ...

13. State Discriminiation Signal Nulling Receivers
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/6/2011
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Sergey V Polyakov, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Optimized state-discrimination receiver strategies for nonorthogonal states can improve the capacity of the communication channels operating with error rates below the ones corresponding to conventional receivers. Coherent signal-nulling receivers us ...

14. Frequency-bin Entangled Comb of Photon Pairs From a Silicon-on-Insulator Micro-Resonator
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 1/13/2011
Authors: Jun Chen, Zachary H Levine, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We present a quantum-mechanical theory to describe narrow-band photon- pair generation via four-wave mixing in a Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) micro- resonator. We also provide design principles for efficient photon-pair generation in an SOI mic ...

15. Quantum Transduction of Telecommunications-band Single Photons from a Quantum Dot by Frequency Upconversion
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 10/3/2010
Authors: Matthew T. Rakher, Lijun Ma, Oliver T Slattery, Xiao Tang, Kartik A Srinivasan

16. Generation of optical coherent-state superpositions by number-resolved photon subtraction from the squeezed vacuum
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/9/2010
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Scott C Glancy, Tracy S. Clement, Brice R. Calkins, Adriana Eleni Lita, Aaron Miller, Aaron J. Miller, Alan L Migdall, Sae Woo Nam, Richard P Mirin, Emanuel H Knill
Abstract: We have created heralded coherent-state superpositions (CSSs) by subtracting up to three photons from a pulse of squeezed vacuum light. To produce such CSSs at a sufficient rate, we used our high-efficiency photon-number-resolving transition edge sen ...

17. Generation of optical Schrödinger cat states by number-resolved squeezed photon subtraction
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/23/2010
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Scott C Glancy, Tracy S. Clement, Brice R. Calkins, Adriana Eleni Lita, Aaron J. Miller, Alan L Migdall, Aaron J Miller, Sae Woo Nam, Richard P Mirin, Emanuel H Knill
Abstract: We have generated and measured an approximation of an optical Schrödinger cat state by photon subtraction from squeezed vacuum. Figure 1 shows the experimental scheme. Photons are probabilistically subtracted from squeezed vacuum and detected with a ...

18. Joint spectral distribution of a periodically poled KTP source for quantum information applications
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/23/2010
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Burm Baek, Martin J Stevens, Tracy S. Clement, Sae Woo Nam, Robert Hadfield, Ryan Bennink, Warren Grice, Sander N. Dorenbos, Tony Zijlstra, Teun Klapwijk, Val Zwiller
Abstract: We present our experimental results obtained from a periodically poled KTP (pp-KTP) crystal designed to produce a pure squeezed vacuum near 1550 nm. A pure squeezed vacuum in a single mode is one of the building blocks towards high fidelity optical ...

19. Enhanced telecom wavelength single-photon detection with NbTiN superconducting nanowires on oxidized silicon
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/3/2010
Authors: Michael G. Tanner, C. M. Natarajan, V. K. Pottapenjara, J. A. O?Connor, R. J. Warburton, Robert Hadfield, Burm Baek, Sae Woo Nam, S. Dorenbos, T. Zijlstra, Teun Klapwijk, Val Zwiller
Abstract: Superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) have emerged as a highly promising infrared single-photon detector technology. Next-generation devices are being developed with enhanced detection efficiency (DE) at key technological wavele ...

20. Heralded, pure-state single-photon source based on a Potassium Titanyl Phosphate waveguide
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 2/15/2010
Authors: Zachary H Levine, Jingyun Fan, Jun Chen, Alexander E. Ling, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: WWe analyze the generation of single spatial mode, spectrally uncorrelated photon pairs via type II spontaneous parametric downconversion in a Potassium Titanyl Phosphate (KTP) waveguide using real experimental parameters. We show that this source ...
