61. 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 ...

62. Sub-wavelength interference of thermal light with photon-number resolving detection
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/10/2014
Authors: Yanhua (Yanhua) Zhai, Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We examine the spatial correlation of thermal-light diffracted through a double-slit using photon-number-resolved detection to directly measure high-order correlations. We observe sinusoidal modulations of the spatial coherence in the diffracted ligh ...

63. 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 ...

64. 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 ...

65. Waveguide source of correlated photon pairs for chip-scale quantum information processing
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 8/26/2009
Authors: Jun Chen, Aaron Pearlman, Alexander E. Ling, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We present a systematic study of a correlated photon-pair source based on a periodically-poled KTiOPO4 (PPKTP) waveguide. The waveguide was fabricated on a KTiOPO4 crystal supporting type-II parametric down-conversion. In addition, periodic poling ...
