41. 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 ...

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

43. 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 ...

44. 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 ...

45. 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 ...

46. Optimizing Single-Photon Source Heralding Efficiency and Detection Efficiency Metrology at 1550 nm Using Periodically Poled Lithium Niobate
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 3/23/2006
Authors: Stefania Castelletto, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, V Schettini, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We explore the feasibility of using high-efficiency periodically-poled crystals to produce photon pairs for photon-counting detector calibrations at 1550 nm. The goal is the development of an appropriate PDC source at telecom wavelengths meeting the ...

47. Photon antibunching from a single lithographically defined InGaAs/GaAs quantum dot
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 2/28/2011
Authors: Varun Boehm Verma, Martin J Stevens, Kevin Lawrence Silverman, Neville Dias, Akash Garg, James J. Coleman, Richard P Mirin
Abstract: We demonstrate photon antibunching from a single lithographically defined quantum dot fabricated by electron beam lithography, wet chemical etching, and overgrowth of the barrier layers by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. Measurement of the se ...

48. Photon pair generation in dispersion-shifted fiber with nearly complete suppression of raman photons
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/6/2008
Authors: Shellee Dawn Dyer, Lenson Pellouchoud, Martin J Stevens, Burm Baek, Sae Woo Nam, Robert Hadfield
Abstract: We show photon pair generation from spontaneous four-wave mixing in dispersion-shifted fiber. By cooling the fiber to 4 K, we achieve almost complete suppression of the Raman photons, yielding a coincidence-to-accidental ratio of approximately 360, e ...

49. Photon-Number-Resolved Detection of Photon-Subtracted Thermal Light
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/18/2013
Authors: Jingyun Fan, Yanhua Zhai, Francisco Elohim Becerra Chavez, Boris L. Glebov, Adriana Eleni Lita, Brice Robert Calkins, Thomas Gerrits, Sae Woo Nam, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We examine the photon statistics of photon-subtracted thermal light using photonnumberresolving detection. We show the photon-number distribution transforms from a Bose-Einstein distribution to a Poisson distribution as the number of ...

50. Polarization Directions of Non-Collinear Phase Matched Optical Parametric Down-Conversion Output
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/1/1997
