11. Transition edge sensors with low jitter and fast recovery times
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/30/2012
Authors: Antia A. Lamas-Linares, Nathan A Tomlin, Brice R. Calkins, Adriana Eleni Lita, Thomas Gerrits, Joern Beyer, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: Superconducting transition edge sensors (TES) for single photon detection have been shown to have almost perfect quantum efficiency (98%) at a wide range of wavelengths. Their high quantum efficiency combined with their ability to intrisically me ...

12. Low-noise chip-based frequency conversion by four-wave-mixing Bragg scattering in SiNx waveguides
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/15/2012
Authors: Imad I. Agha, Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Bryce Thurston, Kartik A Srinivasan

13. Continuous-variable quantum compressed sensing
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/9/2012
Authors: Yi-Kai Liu, Matthias Ohliger, Vincent Nesme, David Gross, Jens Eisert
Abstract: We introduce a novel method to faithfully reconstruct unknown quantum states that are approximately low-rank, using only a few measurement settings. The method is general enough to allow for measurements from a continuous family, and is also appl ...

14. Effect of Losses on the Performance of an SU(1,1) Interferometer
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/4/2012
Authors: Alberto Manuel Marino, Neil V. (Neil Vladimir) Corzo Trejo, Paul D Lett
Abstract: We study the effect of losses on the phase sensitivity of the SU(1,1) interferometer for different configurations. We find that this type of interferometer is robust against losses that result from an inefficient detection system. This type of loss o ...

15. Single-photon and photon-number-resolving detectors
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 4/20/2012
Authors: Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam, Mark Itzler
Abstract: Several important advances were reported in single-photon detectors and photon-number-resolving detectors in 2011. New materials with smaller superconducting gaps were demonstrated for superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) tha ...

16. M-ary state phase-shift keying discrimination below the homodyne limit
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/22/2011
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Sergey V Polyakov, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We investigate a strategy for M-ary discrimination of nonorthogonal phase states with error rates below the homodyne limit. This strategy uses feed forward to update a reference field and Signal nulling for the state discriminati ...

17. Higher-order photon correlations in pulsed photonic crystal nanolasers
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/16/2011
Authors: D. Elvira, X. Hachair, Varun Boehm Verma, R. Braive, G. Beaudoin, I. Robert-Philip, I. Sagnes, Burm Baek, Sae Woo Nam, E Dauler, I. Abram, Martin J Stevens, A. Beveratos
Abstract: We report on the higher-order photon correlations of a high-{Beta} nanolaser under pulsed excitation at room temperature. Using a multiplexed four-element superconducting single-photon detector we measured g^u(n)^(0) with n = 2,3,4. All orders of ...

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

19. 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 ...

20. Efficient quantum dot single photon extraction into an optical fiber using a nanophotonic directional coupler
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/19/2011
Authors: Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Matthew T. Rakher, W. Wegscheider, Dieter Schuh, Antonio Badolato, Kartik A Srinivasan
Abstract: We demonstrate a spectrally broadband and efficient technique for collecting photoluminescence from a single InAs quantum dot directly into a standard single mode optical fiber. In this approach, an optical fiber taper waveguide is placed in contact ...
