21. 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 Robert Calkins, Adriana Eleni 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 ...

22. 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 Robert Calkins, Adriana Eleni 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 ...

23. Hanbury Brown-Twiss interferometry without a beamsplitter
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 8/19/2008
Authors: Martin J Stevens, Eric Dauler, Burm Baek, Richard J. Molnar, Scott A. Hamilton, Karl Berggren, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: We demonstrate Hanbury-Brown Twiss interferometry without a beamsplitter, by employing a single-mode optical fiber coupled to a multi-element superconducting nanowire single-photon detector.

24. 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 ...

25. High resolution, high collection efficiency in numerical aperture increasing lens microscopy of individual quantum dots
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 8/9/2005
Authors: Zhiheng H Liu, B. B. Goldberg, Stephen B Ippolito, Anthony N Vamivakas, M. S. Unlu, Richard P Mirin
Abstract: We demonstrate the application of a subsurface solid immersion technique to the photoluminescence spectroscopy of individual quantum dots. Contrasted with the conventional solid immersion microscopy, we used a numerical aperture increasing lens and m ...

26. High-Order Coherences of Chaotic and Coherent Optical States
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 1/12/2010
Authors: Martin J Stevens, Burm Baek, Eric Dauler, Andrew J. Kerman, Richard J. Molnar, Scott A. Hamilton, Karl Berggren, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: We demonstrate a new approach to measuring high-order temporal coherences that uses a four-element superconducting nanowire single-photon detector. The four independent, interleaved single-photonsensitive elements parse a single spatial mode of an op ...

27. High-brightness, low-noise, all-fiber photon pair source
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/4/2009
Authors: Shellee Dawn Dyer, Burm Baek, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: We demonstrate an all-fiber photon pair source for the critical telecom C-band. We achieve high pair generation rates in excess of 10 MHz while maintaining coincidence-to-accidental ratios (CARs) greater than 100. This is one of the brightest and low ...

28. Improved implementation of the Alicki Van Ryn nonclassicality test for a single particle using Si detectors
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 4/15/2009
Authors: Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall, Giorgio Brida, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Marco Genovese, Fabrizio Piacentini, V Schettini, Nicolas Gisin
Abstract: Recently a test of nonclassicality for a single qubit was proposed R. Alicki and N. Van Ryn, J. Phys, A: Math. Theor. 41, 062001 2008. We present an optimized experimental realization of this test leading to a 46standard deviation violation of cl ...

29. Improving the performance of bright quantum dot single photon sources using temporal filtering via amplitude modulation
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 3/7/2013
Authors: Serkan Ates, Imad (Imad) Agha, Angelo Gulinatti, Ivan Rech, Antonio Badolato, Kartik A Srinivasan

30. Innovations in Maximum Likelihood Quantum State Tomography
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 10/9/2009
Authors: Scott C Glancy, Emanuel H Knill, Thomas Gerrits, Tracy S. Clement, Brice Robert Calkins, Adriana Eleni Lita, Aaron J Miller, Alan L Migdall, Sae Woo Nam, Richard P Mirin
Abstract: At NIST we are engaged in an experiment whose goal is to create superpositions of optical coherent states (such superpositions are sometimes called "Schroedinger cat" states). We use homodyne detection to measure the light, and we apply ma ...
