41. Single-Photon Propagation Time through Dielectric Bandgaps: Large Variation Due to Small Structural Changes
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 2/1/2010
Authors: Natalia Borjemscaia Rutter, Sergey V Polyakov, Paul D Lett, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: The transit times of photons traveling through opaque barriers such as dielectric stacks exhibit the Hartman saturation effect. This saturation of the transit time is quite sensitive to the addition of a single dielectric layers, even onto an alread ...

42. Single-photon and photon-number-resolving detectors
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 4/20/2012
Authors: Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam, Mark Itzler
Abstract: Several important advances were reported in single-photon detectors and photon-number-resolving detectors in 2011. New materials with smaller superconducting gaps were demonstrated for superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) tha ...

43. Spectrally Bright and Broad Fiber-Based Heralded Single-Photon Source
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/29/2008
Authors: Elizabeth A Goldschmidt, M D. Eisaman, Jingyun Fan, Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We present the first experimental characterization of a heralded single-photon source based on spontaneous four-wave-mixing in a single-mode microstructure fiber. We measure the second-order correlation function, g(2)(0), to be far below the classi ...

44. State Discriminiation Signal Nulling Receivers
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/6/2011
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Sergey V Polyakov, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Optimized state-discrimination receiver strategies for nonorthogonal states can improve the capacity of the communication channels operating with error rates below the ones corresponding to conventional receivers. Coherent signal-nulling receivers us ...

45. Tests of a Two-Photon Technique for Measuring Polarization Mode Dispersion With Subfemtosecond Precision
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 1/1/1999
Authors: Eric Dauler, Gregg Jaeger, A Muller, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: An investigation is made of a recently introduced quantum interferometric method capable of measuring polarization mode dispersion (PMD) on sub-femtosecond scales, without the usual interferometric stability problems associated with such small ...

46. Transition edge sensors with low jitter and fast recovery times
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/30/2012
Authors: Antia A. Lamas-Linares, Nathan A Tomlin, Brice R. Calkins, Adriana Eleni Lita, Thomas Gerrits, Joern Beyer, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: Superconducting transition edge sensors (TES) for single photon detection have been shown to have almost perfect quantum efficiency (98%) at a wide range of wavelengths. Their high quantum efficiency combined with their ability to intrisically me ...

47. Waveguide source of correlated photon pairs for chip-scale quantum information processing
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 8/26/2009
Authors: Jun Chen, Aaron Pearlman, Alexander E. Ling, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We present a systematic study of a correlated photon-pair source based on a periodically-poled KTiOPO4 (PPKTP) waveguide. The waveguide was fabricated on a KTiOPO4 crystal supporting type-II parametric down-conversion. In addition, periodic poling ...
