21. 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 ...

22. Observing the average trajectories of single photons in a two-slit interferometer
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/3/2011
Authors: Sacha Kocsis, Boris Braverman, Sylvain Ravets, Martin J Stevens, Richard P Mirin, L. Krister Shalm, Aephraim M. Steinberg
Abstract: A consequence of the quantum mechanical uncertainty principle is that one may not discuss the path or "trajectory" that a quantum particle takes, because any measurement of position irrevocably disturbs the momentum, and vice versa. Using weak me ...

23. Photon antibunching from a single lithographically defined InGaAs/GaAs quantum dot
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 2/28/2011
Authors: Varun Boehm Verma, Martin J Stevens, Kevin Lawrence Silverman, Neville Dias, Akash Garg, James J. Coleman, Richard P Mirin
Abstract: We demonstrate photon antibunching from a single lithographically defined quantum dot fabricated by electron beam lithography, wet chemical etching, and overgrowth of the barrier layers by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. Measurement of the se ...

24. Fiber-based cryogenic and time-resolved spectroscopy of PbS quantum dots
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 1/14/2011
Authors: Matthew T. Rakher, Ranojoy Bose, Chee Wei Wong, Kartik A Srinivasan

25. 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 ...

26. 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

27. All-optical Generation of States for "Encoding a Qubit in an Oscillator"
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 10/1/2010
Authors: Hilma M Vasconcelos, Liliana Sanz, Scott C Glancy
Abstract: Both discrete and continuous signals are used to carry classical information. Analogously, discrete and continuous systems can be used to encode quantum information. Most quantum computation schemes propose enconding qubits using two level systems, s ...

28. 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 ...

29. 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 ...

30. 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 ...
