61. 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 ...

62. 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 ...

63. Solutions of the Maxwell equations and photon wave functions
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/26/2009
Author: Peter J Mohr
Abstract: Properties of six-component electromagnetic field solutions of a matrix form of the Maxwell equations, analogous to the four-component solutions of the Dirac equation, are described. It is shown that the six-component equation, including sources, is ...

64. Spectrally Bright and Broad Fiber-Based Heralded Single-Photon Source
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 7/29/2008
Authors: Elizabeth Anne 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 ...

65. 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 ...

66. Temperature-dependent, single quantum dot single photon statistics
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/16/2004
Author: Richard P Mirin
Abstract: We describe temperature-dependent photon antibunching measurements from single InGaAs/GaAs quantum dots. The second order intensity correlation demonstrates single emitter emission up to 120 K and nonclassical light emission to 135 K.

67. 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 ...

68. Time-resolved double-slit interference pattern measurement with entangled photons
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 4/28/2014
Authors: Lynden Krister Shalm, Thomas Jennewein, Kevin Resch, Piotr Kolenderski, Carmelo Scarcella, Kelsey D. Johnsen Johnsen, Deny Hamel, Cahterine Holloway, Simone Tisa, Alberto Tosi
Abstract: The double-slit experiment strikingly demonstrates the wave-particle duality of quantum objects. In this famous experiment, particles pass one-by-one through a pair of slits and are detected on a distant screen. A distinct wave-like pattern emerg ...

69. 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 ...

70. Tunable Delay of Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Entanglement
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 2/18/2009
Authors: Alberto Manuel Marino, Raphael C. Pooser, Vincent Boyer, Paul D Lett
Abstract: Entanglement is an important quantum resource which displays correlations between two subsystems that are stronger than the ones that can be obtained classically. This makes it the basis for a number of applications, such as quantum information pro ...
