51. 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 E 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 ...

52. Narrow linewidth source of greatly non-degenerate photon pairs for quantum repeaters from a short singly-resonant cavity
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 8/26/2015
Authors: Oliver T Slattery, Paulina S Kuo, Lijun Ma, Xiao Tang
Abstract: Quantum repeaters require entangled photon pair sources to connect flying qubits in the telecommunication band and stationary qubits at atomic transition wavelengths and linewidths for quantum memories. We have experimentally implemented a narrow ...

53. 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 ...

54. Optomechanical Raman-Ratio Thermometry
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/9/2015
Authors: Katarina Cicak, Tom Purdy, Pen Li Yu, Nir Kampel, Bob Peterson, Raymond Wiley Simmonds, Cindy Regal
Abstract: The temperature dependence of the asymmetry between Stokes and anti-Stokes Raman scattering can be exploited for self-calibrating, optically-based thermometry. In the context of cavity optomechanics, we observe the cavity-enhanced scattering of light ...

55. Phonon Assisted Gain in a Semiconductor Quantum Dot Maser
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/13/2015
Authors: Michael Gullans, Yinyiu Liu, George Stehlik, Jason Petta, Jacob M Taylor
Abstract: We develop a microscopic model for the recently demonstrated double quantum dot (DQD) maser. In characterizing the gain of this device we find that, in addition to the direct stimulated emission of photons, there is a large contribution from transiti ...

56. Photon Number Resolution Enables Quantum Receiver for Realistic Coherent Optical Communications
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/17/2014
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Quantum-enhanced measurements can provide information about the properties of a physical system with sensitivities beyond what is fundamentally possible with conventional technologies. However, this advantage can be achieved only if quantum measure ...

57. Polarization Directions of Non-Collinear Phase Matched Optical Parametric Down-Conversion Output
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/1/1997
Author: Alan L Migdall
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=104040

58. Polarization-selective Kerr-phase-shift method for fast, all-optical polarization switching in a cold atomic medium
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/30/2014
Authors: C. J. Zhu, Lu Deng, Edward W Hagley
Abstract: We propose a photonic CNOT gate and a polarization gate using a polarization-selective- kerrphase- shift scheme. Using the demonstrated continuous Kerr phase shifting technique we selectively write a π phase shift to one of the circularly pol ...

59. Preface to Proceedings of the International Conference Quantum Theory: Reconsideration of Foundations-6 (QTRF6) held in Vaxjo, Sweden, 11-14 June 2012
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/18/2012
Authors: Harald Atmanspacher, Andrei Khrennikov, Alan L Migdall, Sergey V Polyakov
Abstract: A wide spectrum of topics was presented in talks at this conference: quantum foundations (especially, Heisenberg's uncertainty relation and its generalizations) and information, mathematical formalism of quantum theory, philosophy, methodology of m ...
