1. Quantum Nondemolition Measurement of a Nonclassical State of a Massive Object
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 12/7/2015
Authors: Florent Quentin Lecocq, Jeremy B Clark, Raymond Wiley Simmonds, Jose Alberto Aumentado, John D Teufel
Abstract: By coupling a macroscopic mechanical oscillator to two microwave cavities, we simultaneously prepare and monitor a nonclassical steady state of mechanical motion. In each cavity, correlated radiation pressure forces induced by two coherent drives ...

2. Optomechanical Raman-Ratio Thermometry
Topic: Quantum Physics
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 ...

3. Overwhelming thermomechanical motion with microwave radiation pressure shot noise
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 8/21/2015
Authors: John D Teufel, Florent Quentin Lecocq, Raymond Wiley Simmonds
Abstract: We measure the fundamental noise processes associated with a continuous linear position measurement of a micromechanical membrane incorporated in a microwave cavity optomechanical circuit. We observe the trade-o ff between the two fundamental sou ...

4. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensors for Quantum Optics
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 6/2/2015
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Adriana E Lita, Brice R. Calkins
Abstract: High efficiency single-photon detectors allow novel measurements in quantum information processing and quantum photonic systems. The photon-number resolving transition edge sensor (TES) is known for its near-unity detection efficiency and has been ...

5. Quantum Nonlinear Optics Near Optomechanical Instabilities
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 1/9/2015
Authors: Xunnong Xu, Michael Gullans, Jacob M Taylor
Abstract: Optomechanical systems provide a unique platform for observing quantum behavior of macro- scopic objects. However, efforts towards realizing nonlinear behavior at the single photon level have been inhibited by the small size of the radiation pressure ...

6. Reconstruction of mode structure of faint sources and its applications
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 12/19/2014
Authors: Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall, Elizabeth A. Goldschmidt, Giorgio Brida, Stefan Kuck, Fabrizio Piacentini, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, I. Ruo Berchera, Marco Genovese
Abstract: We build upon our newly developed mode reconstruction technique that takes advantage of higher-order photon number statistics and propose new experiments.

7. Homogeneous Linewidth Narrowing of the Charged Exciton via Nuclear Spin Screening in an InAs/GaAs Quantum Dot Ensemble
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 11/18/2014
Authors: Galan A Moody, Mingming M. Feng, Corey Alexander McDonald, Richard P Mirin, Kevin Lawrence Silverman
Abstract: In semiconductor quantum dots, the electron hyperfine interaction with the nuclear spin bath is the leading source of spin decoherence at cryogenic temperature. Using high-resolution two-color differential transmission spectroscopy, we demonstra ...

8. Photon Number Resolution Enables Quantum Receiver for Realistic Coherent Optical Communications
Topic: Quantum Physics
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 ...

9. Topological Robustness of Transport Statistics for Photons in a Synthetic Gauge Field
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 8/20/2014
Authors: Sunil Mittal, Jingyun Fan, Sanli Faez, Alan L Migdall, Jacob M Taylor, Mohammad Hafezi
Abstract: Electronic transport through a disordered medium leads generically to localization, where conductance drops exponentially with system size, even at zero temperature. The addition of gauge fields to disordered media leads to fundamental changes in ...

10. Show, don't tell: When probing the state of a quantum system, it may be faster and more useful to record observations that are themselves quantum superpositions (Nature Physics "News and Views" article)
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 7/27/2014
Author: Yi-Kai Liu
Abstract: Measurement and computation are fundamental tools in science. However, many of our ordinary intuitions break down when we study microscopic, quantum-mechanical objects. For instance, measurements of quantum systems are limited by uncertainty prin ...
