51. 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 ...

52. 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 ...

53. 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 ...

54. Photon-Number-Resolved Detection of Photon-Subtracted Thermal Light
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/18/2013
Authors: Jingyun Fan, Yanhua Zhai, Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Boris L. Glebov, Adriana Eleni Lita, Brice R. 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 ...

55. Polarization Directions of Non-Collinear Phase Matched Optical Parametric Down-Conversion Output
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/1/1997
Author: Alan L Migdall

56. Quantum Frequency Translation of Single-Photon States
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/1/2011
Authors: Kartik A Srinivasan, Michael G. Raymer
Abstract: N/A

57. Quantum Transduction of Telecommunications-band Single Photons from a Quantum Dot by Frequency Upconversion
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 10/3/2010
Authors: Matthew T. Rakher, Lijun Ma, Oliver T Slattery, Xiao Tang, Kartik A Srinivasan

58. Quantum information processing and quantum control with trapped atomic ions
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/14/2009
Author: David J Wineland
Abstract: The role of trapped atomic ions in the field of quantum information processing is briefly reviewed. We discuss some of the historical developments that enabled ions to enter the field and then summarize the basic mechanisms required for logic gates a ...

59. Quantum state tomography of a fiber-based source of polarization-entangled photon pairs
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/20/2007
Authors: Jingyun Fan, M D. Eisaman, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We report an experimental demonstration of a bright highfidelity single-mode-optical-fiber source of polarization-entangled photon pairs. The source takes advantage of single-mode fiber optics, highly nonlinear microstructure fiber, judicious phas ...

60. Reduced Deadtime and Higher Rate Photon-Counting Detection Using a Multiplexed Detector Array
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 1/20/2007
Authors: Stefania Castelletto, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, V Schettini, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We present a scheme for a photon-counting detection system that can be operated at incident photon rates higher than otherwise possible by suppressing the effects of detector deadtime. The method uses an array of N detectors and a 1-by-N optical swit ...
