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. 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 ...

4. 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 ...

5. Continuous-variable quantum compressed sensing
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/9/2012
Authors: Yi-Kai Liu, Matthias Ohliger, Vincent Nesme, David Gross, Jens Eisert
Abstract: We introduce a novel method to faithfully reconstruct unknown quantum states that are approximately low-rank, using only a few measurement settings. The method is general enough to allow for measurements from a continuous family, and is also appl ...

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

7. Demonstrating a High Symmetric Single-Photon Heralding Efficiency in Spontaneous Parametric Downconversion
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/6/2013
Authors: Marcelo Pereira, Francisco Elohim 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 ...

8. Designing high electron mobility transistor heterostructures with quantum dots for efficient, number-resolving photon detection
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/1/2008
Authors: Mary A. Rowe, Eric Gansen, M. Greene, Danna Rosenberg, Todd E Harvey, Mark Su, Robert Hadfield, Sae Woo Nam, Richard P Mirin
Abstract: We describe the design of the epitaxial layers for an efficient, photon-number-determining detector that utilizes a layer of self-assembled quantum dots as an optically addressable gate in a field-effect transistor. Our design features a dedicated ab ...

9. Differences Explained in Correlated-Photon Metrology Techniques
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/1/1999
Author: Alan L Migdall

10. Effect of Losses on the Performance of an SU(1,1) Interferometer
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/4/2012
Authors: Alberto Manuel Marino, Neil V. (Neil Vladimir) Corzo Trejo, Paul D Lett
Abstract: We study the effect of losses on the phase sensitivity of the SU(1,1) interferometer for different configurations. We find that this type of interferometer is robust against losses that result from an inefficient detection system. This type of loss o ...
