21. Frequency-bin Entangled Comb of Photon Pairs From a Silicon-on-Insulator Micro-Resonator
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 1/13/2011
Authors: Jun Chen, Zachary H Levine, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We present a quantum-mechanical theory to describe narrow-band photon- pair generation via four-wave mixing in a Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) micro- resonator. We also provide design principles for efficient photon-pair generation in an SOI mic ...

22. 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 R. 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 ...

23. 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 R. 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 ...

24. 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.

25. 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 ...

26. High quantum-efficiency photon-number-resolving detector for photonic on-chip information processing
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/18/2013
Authors: Brice R. Calkins, Paolo L Mennea, Adriana Eleni Lita, Benjamin Metcalf, Steven Kolthammer, Antia A. Lamas-Linares, Justin Spring, Peter C Humphreys, Richard P Mirin, James Gates, Peter Smith, Ian Walmsley, Thomas Gerrits, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: The integrated optical circuit is a promising architecture for the realization of complex quantum optical states and information networks. One element that is required for many of these applications is a high-efficiency photon detector capable of ...

27. 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 ...

28. 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 ...

29. 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 ...

30. Higher-order photon correlations in pulsed photonic crystal nanolasers
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/16/2011
Authors: D. Elvira, X. Hachair, Varun Boehm Verma, R. Braive, G. Beaudoin, I. Robert-Philip, I. Sagnes, Burm Baek, Sae Woo Nam, E Dauler, I. Abram, Martin J Stevens, A. Beveratos
Abstract: We report on the higher-order photon correlations of a high-{Beta} nanolaser under pulsed excitation at room temperature. Using a multiplexed four-element superconducting single-photon detector we measured g^u(n)^(0) with n = 2,3,4. All orders of ...
