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. 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 ...

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. 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 ...

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 E. 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. Deterministic Generation of Single-Photons via Multiplexing Repetitive Parametric Downconversions
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/17/2013
Authors: Boris L. Glebov, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We show through Monte Carlo simulation, under realistic experimental conditions that a system which is composed of a just a few repetitive spontaneous parametric downconversion processes can approximate an on-demand single-photon source.

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

10. Domain-engineered PPLN for entangled photon generation and other quantum information applications
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/1/2014
Authors: Paulina S Kuo, Jason S. Pelc, Oliver T Slattery, Lijun Ma, Xiao Tang
Abstract: We describe the design and application of domain-engineered periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN) for use as a source of entangled photons and for other tools in quantum information and communications. By specially designing and controlling the P ...
