61. 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

62. 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 ...

63. Quantum interference between two single photons of different microwave frequencies
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 4/20/2012
Authors: Francois E. Nguyen, Eva A. Zakka-Bajjani, Jose Alberto Aumentado, Raymond Wiley Simmonds
Abstract: Quantum interference is an important tool for fields such as lithography, metrology and quantum processing. Two identical optical photons (photons with the same wavelength and polarization) simultaneously sent through the two input ports of a semi-tr ...

64. 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 ...

65. Realization of a single and closed Lambda-system in a room-temperature three-level coherently prepared resonant medium with narrow D 1 hyperfine splittings
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 12/1/2009
Authors: Ke Li, Lu Deng, M G Payne
Abstract: A single, closed three-state Ë-system using a parallel-polarization, co-propagating beam configuration in rubidium is investigated experimentally for efficient group velocity reduction at room temperature using electromagnetically induced transp ...

66. 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 ...

67. 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 ...

68. Single-Photon Sources and Detectors Book: Chapter 1: Introduction
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/29/2013
Authors: Joshua C Bienfang, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall, Sergey V Polyakov
Abstract: In the beginning there was light. And it was good. Not long thereafter people began to look for a comprehensive understanding of its nature. While the publication record starts o a little spotty, in the fth century BC the Greek philosopher Empedocl ...

69. 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 ...

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