41. 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

42. 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 E 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 ...

43. Efficient photon pair sources based on Silicon-on-Insulator microresonators
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 8/30/2010
Authors: Jun Chen, Zachary H Levine, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We present a general quantum-mechanical formalism to describe photon pair generation via four-wave mixing in a Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) microresonator. We also provide design principles for efficient photon-pair generation in a SOI microresonator t ...

44. 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 E 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 ...

45. 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 ...

46. Chip-scale waveguide source for photonic quantum information processing
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/10/2010
Authors: Jun Chen, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: A bright, bandwidth-tunable waveguide photon-pair source can support two types of spontaneous parametric downconversion.

47. 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 ...

48. 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 ...

49. Single-Photon Propagation Time through Dielectric Bandgaps: Large Variation Due to Small Structural Changes
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 2/1/2010
Authors: Natalia Borjemscaia Rutter, Sergey V Polyakov, Paul D Lett, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: The transit times of photons traveling through opaque barriers such as dielectric stacks exhibit the Hartman saturation effect. This saturation of the transit time is quite sensitive to the addition of a single dielectric layers, even onto an alread ...

50. Quantum information processing and quantum control with trapped atomic ions
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/14/2009
Author: David J Wineland
Abstract: The role of trapped atomic ions in the field of quantum information processing is briefly reviewed. We discuss some of the historical developments that enabled ions to enter the field and then summarize the basic mechanisms required for logic gates a ...
