41. Microstructure fiber-based source of photonic entanglement
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/1/2009
Authors: Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall, Jun Chen, Elizabeth Anne Goldschmidt, Alexander E. Ling
Abstract: We review the development of photonic entanglement via four-wave mixing in microstructure fiber

42. Migdall Responds
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/1/1999
Author: Alan L Migdall
Abstract: I thank Duane Jaecks for pointing out earlier origins of the first of the correlated photon metrology applications described in my article - absolute detector quantum efficiency. The work in these early references is helpful in putting the technique ...

43. Migdall Responds II: More Correlated Photon Metrology History
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/1/1999
Author: Alan L Migdall
Abstract: I appreciate the comments of Mike Gruntman (Sept., page 80) concerning the history of using correlated pairs of particles(photons) to determine absolute detector quantum efficiencies. Unfortunately there is an overall misunderstanding of the techniqu ...

44. Mode Expansion and Bragg Filtering Enable a High-Fidelity Fiber-Based Photon-Pair Source
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/9/2009
Authors: Alexander E. Ling, Jun Chen, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We report the development of a fiber-based single spatial mode source of photon-pairs where the efficiency of extracting photon-pairs is 15x better than a previous implementation [16]. This critical improvement in efficiency enabled a spectrally bri ...

45. More on History of Applied Correlated-Photon Metrology-Migdall Replies
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/1/1999
Author: Alan L Migdall

46. Multi-Spatial-Mode Single-Beam Quadrature Squeezed States of Light from Four-Wave Mixing in Hot Rubidium Vapor
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 10/24/2011
Authors: Neil V. (Neil Vladimir) Corzo Trejo, Alberto Manuel Marino, Kevin M. Jones, Paul D Lett
Abstract: We present experimental results on the generation of multi-spatial-mode, single-beam, quadrature squeezed light using four-wave mixing in hot Rb vapor. Squeezing and phase-sensitive deamplification are observed over a range of powers and detunings ne ...

47. Nanosecond-scale timing jitter in transition edge sensors at telecom and visible wavelengths
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/10/2013
Authors: Antia A. Lamas-Linares, Brice R. Calkins, Nathan A Tomlin, Thomas Gerrits, Adriana Eleni Lita, Joern Beyer, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: Transition edge sensors (TES) have the highest reported efficiencies (> 98%) for single photon detection in the visible and near infrared. Experiments in quantum information and foundations of physics that rely on this efficiency have started incor ...

48. Nanowire-based superconducting single-photon detectors for infrared single-photon source characterization
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/2/2008
Authors: Martin J Stevens, Burm Baek, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam, Robert Hadfield
Abstract: Single-photon sources and detectors enable a wide range of applications, from quantum information technologies to fundamental tests of quantum optics. Semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) have emerged as promising single-photon sources, and recent work h ...

49. Observing the average trajectories of single photons in a two-slit interferometer
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/3/2011
Authors: Sacha Kocsis, Boris Braverman, Sylvain Ravets, Martin J Stevens, Richard P Mirin, L. Krister Shalm, Aephraim M. Steinberg
Abstract: A consequence of the quantum mechanical uncertainty principle is that one may not discuss the path or "trajectory" that a quantum particle takes, because any measurement of position irrevocably disturbs the momentum, and vice versa. Using weak me ...

50. On-demand Single Photons from Individual Epitaxial Quantum Dots
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 10/24/2005
Authors: Richard P Mirin, Martin J Stevens
Abstract: We will describe our group's efforts to use epitaxial InGaAs/GaAs quantum dots as sources of on-demand single photons and indistinguishable single photons. We have demonstrated second order intensity correlation measurements, g^u2^{tau}, with g^u ...
