11. Mode reconstruction of a light field by multi-photon statistics
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/15/2013
Authors: Elizabeth A Goldschmidt, Fabrizio Piacentini, I. Ruo Berchera, Sergey V Polyakov, Silke Peters, Stefan Kuck, Giorgio Brida, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Alan L Migdall, Marco Genovese
Abstract: Knowing the underlying number and structure of occupied modes of a light field plays a crucial role in minimizing loss and decoherence of quantum information. Typically, full characterization of the mode structure involves a series of several separ ...

12. Implementation of generalized quantum measurements for unambiguous discrimination of multiple nonorthogonal coherent states
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/18/2013
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Generalized quantum measurements can perform perfect discrimination of nonorthogonal states by allowing for inconclusive results, task which is impossible performing only measurements with definite outcomes. We demonstrate the realization of genera ...

13. Nanosecond-scale timing jitter in transition edge sensors at telecom and visible wavelengths
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/10/2013
Authors: Antia A. Lamas-Linares, Brice R. Calkins, Nathan A Tomlin, Thomas Gerrits, Adriana Eleni Lita, Joern Beyer, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: Transition edge sensors (TES) have the highest reported efficiencies (> 98%) for single photon detection in the visible and near infrared. Experiments in quantum information and foundations of physics that rely on this efficiency have started incor ...

14. Demonstrating a High Symmetric Single-Photon Heralding Efficiency in Spontaneous Parametric Downconversion
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/6/2013
Authors: Marcelo Pereira, Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Boris L. Glebov, Jingyun Fan, Sae Woo Nam, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We demonstrate a symmetric, single-spatial mode, single-photon heralding efficiency of 84% for a type-II spontaneous parametric downconversion process. This achievement of high efficiency, single-spatial mode collection is key to enabling many quantu ...

15. Improving the performance of bright quantum dot single photon sources using temporal filtering via amplitude modulation
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 3/7/2013
Authors: Serkan Ates, Imad I. Agha, Angelo Gulinatti, Ivan Rech, Antonio Badolato, Kartik A Srinivasan

16. Experimental test of an event-based corpuscular model modification as an alternative to quantum mechanics
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 2/13/2013
Authors: Giorgio Brida, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Marco Genovese, Alan L Migdall, Fabrizio Piacentini, Sergey V Polyakov, Paola Traina
Abstract: We present the first experimental test that distinguishes between an Event-Based Corpuscular Model (EBCM)9) of the interaction of photons with matter and quantum mechanics. The test looks at the interference that results as a single photon passes t ...

17. Experimental demonstration of a receiver beating the standard quantum limit for multiple nonorthogonal coherent-state discrimination
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 1/6/2013
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: The measurement of the state of a quantum system with inherent quantum uncertainty (noise) approaching the ultimate physical limits is of both technological and fundamental interest. Quantum noise prevents any mutually nonorthogonal quantum states ...

18. Adaptive measurements in nonorthogonal state discrimination
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/18/2012
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Adaptive measurements represent important resources in quantum information science and quan- tum technologies. They take advantage of the knowledge of partial measurements of the system to optimize subsequent measurements and perform tasks that are ...

19. Preface to Proceedings of the International Conference Quantum Theory: Reconsideration of Foundations-6 (QTRF6) held in Vaxjo, Sweden, 11-14 June 2012
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/18/2012
Authors: Harald Atmanspacher, Andrei Khrennikov, Alan L Migdall, Sergey V Polyakov
Abstract: A wide spectrum of topics was presented in talks at this conference: quantum foundations (especially, Heisenberg's uncertainty relation and its generalizations) and information, mathematical formalism of quantum theory, philosophy, methodology of m ...

20. Introduction to Journal of Modern Optics Special Issue on Single-Photon Devices and Applications
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/15/2012
Authors: Stefan Kuck, Alan L Migdall, Ivo P Degiovanni, Jessica Cheung
Abstract: This special issue accompanies the 5th international conference on single-photon technologies held at the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), Germany, in June 2011. This community has met every two years at national metrology institutes, sta ...
