11. 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 ...

12. 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.

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

14. 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 ...

15. Efficient Generation of Correlated Photon Pairs in a Microstructure Fiber
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/15/2005
Authors: Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall, L Wang
Abstract: We report efficient generation of correlated photon pairs through degenerate four-wave mixing in microstructure fibers. With 735.7 nm pump pulses producing conjugate signal (688.5 nm) and idler (789.8 nm) photons in an 1.8 m microstructure fiber, we ...

16. Efficient generation of correlated photon pairs in a microstructure fiber

17. 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 ...

18. 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 ...

19. Environment-assisted quantum control of a solid state spin via 2-color coherent dark states
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/7/2014
Authors: Jacob M Taylor, Jack Hansom, Carsten Schulte, Claire Le Gall, Clemens Matthiesen, Edmund Clarke, Maxime Hugues, Mete Atature
Abstract: Semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) offer an efficient and scalable interface between single spins and optical photons. However, the solid-state environment of the QD represents an inherent source of noise, generally considered detrimental to coherent c ...

20. Experimental Implementation of Quantum Entanglement and Hyper-Entanglement With a Fiber-Based Two-Photon Source
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/5/2008
Authors: Jun Chen, M D. Eisaman, Elizabeth A. Goldschmidt, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
