21. 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 ...

22. Manipulating the Color and Shape of Single Photons
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/1/2012
Authors: Michael G. Raymer, Kartik A Srinivasan

23. 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 ...

24. 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 ...

25. 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 ...

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

27. 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 ...

28. Coalescence of Single Photons Emitted by Disparate Single Photon Sources: The Example of InAs Quantum Dots and Parametric Down-Conversion Sources
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 10/5/2011
Authors: Sergey V Polyakov, Andreas Muller, Alexander E. Ling, Natalia Borjemscaia Rutter, Edward B. (Edward) Flagg, Edward Van Keuren, Alan L Migdall, Glenn Scott Solomon
Abstract: In quantum mechanics, particles in identical states are indistinguishable, giving rise to effects with no classical analog. Single photons produced by fundamentally dissimilar physical processes will in general not be indistinguishable. We show how ...

29. 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 ...

30. 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 ...
