1. A Broadband High Spectral Brightness Fiber-Based Two-Photon Source
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 3/19/2007
Authors: Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: After characterizing the Raman scattering in a fused silica polarization-maintaining microstructure optical fiber, we built a fiber-based two-photon light source of high spectral brightness, broad spectral range, and very low noise background at room ...

2. Achieving Higher Photon Counting Rates Using Multiplexed Detectors
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 8/13/2006
Authors: Stefania Castelletto, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Alan L Migdall, Sergey V Polyakov, V Schettini
Abstract: As the quantum information field advances, the need for improved single-photon devices is becoming more critical. Quantum information systems are often limited by detector deadtime to count rates of a few MHz, at best. We present a multiplexed detect ...

3. Adapting the Poisson-Influenced K-Means Algorithm for a Larger User Base
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/19/2015
Authors: Brian P. Morris, Zachary H Levine
Abstract: A superconducting transition edge sensor (TES) can be a useful tool for counting the number of photons in a highly attenuated pulse of light, but it requires calibration for its outputs to be interpretable as photon numbers. The Poisson-Influenced K- ...

4. 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 ...

5. An Optical Fiber-Based Source of Polarization-Entangled Photon Pairs
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/10/2007
Authors: Jingyun Fan, M D. Eisaman, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We describe an achromatic, phase-stable, broadband source of polarization-entangled photon pairs with high spectral brightness that uses four-wave mixing in a fiber Sagnac interferometer. We achieved a polarization-entangled two-photon coincidence r ...

6. Characterization of high-purity, pulsed squeezed light at telecom wavelengths from pp-KTP for quantum information applications
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/1/2010
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Burm Baek, Martin J Stevens, Brice R. Calkins, Adriana E Lita, Scott C Glancy, Emanuel H Knill, Sae Woo Nam, Richard P Mirin, Robert Hadfield, Ryan Bennink, Warren Grice, Sander N. Dorenbos, Tony Zijlstra, Teun Klapwijk, Val Zwiller
Abstract: Pure optical squeezing in a single mode is highly desirable for quantum information applications such as continuous variable quantum computing and the generation of optical Schrödinger cat states. To generate optical cat states, photons are subtracte ...

7. 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.

8. 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 ...

9. Conclusive quantum steering with superconducting transition-edge sensors
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 1/10/2012
Authors: Devin H Smith, Marcelo de Almeida, Gillett Geoff, Branciard Cyril, Allesandro Fedrizzi, Weinhold J Till, Adriana E Lita, Brice R. Calkins, Thomas Gerrits, Wiseman H, Sae Woo Nam, Andrew G White
Abstract: Quantum steering allows two parties to verify shared entanglement even if one measurement device is untrusted. A conclusive demonstration of steering through the violation of a steering inequality is of considerable fundamental interest and opens up ...

10. Correlated-Photon Metrology without Absolute Standards
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 1/1/1999
Author: Alan L Migdall
