11. Strong Casimir force reduction by metallic surface nanostructuring
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 9/27/2013
Authors: Francesco Intravaia, Stefan T. Koev, Il Woong Jung, Albert A. Talin, Paul S Davids, Ricardo Decca, Vladimir A Aksyuk, Diego A. R. Dalvit, Daniel Lopez
Abstract: The Casimir force is a quantum-mechanical interaction arising from vacuum fluctuations of the electromagnetic (EM) field and is technologically significant in micro- and nanomechanical systems. Despite rapid progress in nanophotonics, the goal of e ...

12. High quantum-efficiency photon-number-resolving detector for photonic on-chip information processing
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 9/18/2013
Authors: Brice R. Calkins, Paolo L Mennea, Adriana E Lita, Benjamin Metcalf, Steven Kolthammer, Antia A. Lamas-Linares, Justin Spring, Peter C Humphreys, Richard P Mirin, James Gates, Peter Smith, Ian Walmsley, Thomas Gerrits, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: The integrated optical circuit is a promising architecture for the realization of complex quantum optical states and information networks. One element that is required for many of these applications is a high-efficiency photon detector capable of ...

13. Mode reconstruction of a light field by multi-photon statistics
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 7/15/2013
Authors: Elizabeth A Goldschmidt, Fabrizio Piacentini, I. Ruo Berchera, Sergey V Polyakov, Silke Peters, Stefan Kuck, Giorgio Brida, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Alan L Migdall, Marco Genovese
Abstract: Knowing the underlying number and structure of occupied modes of a light field plays a crucial role in minimizing loss and decoherence of quantum information. Typically, full characterization of the mode structure involves a series of several separ ...

14. Implementation of generalized quantum measurements for unambiguous discrimination of multiple nonorthogonal coherent states
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 6/18/2013
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Generalized quantum measurements can perform perfect discrimination of nonorthogonal states by allowing for inconclusive results, task which is impossible performing only measurements with definite outcomes. We demonstrate the realization of genera ...

15. Practical implementation of a test of event-based corpuscular model as an alternative to quantum mechanics
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 5/8/2013
Authors: Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Fabrizio Piacentini, Giorgio Brida, Marco Genovese, Paola Traina
Abstract: We describe in detail the first experimental test that distinguishes between an event-based corpuscular model of the interaction of photons with matter and quantum mechanics. The test looks at the interference that results as a single photon passe ...

16. Bell violation using entangled photons without the fair-sampling assumption
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 4/14/2013
Authors: Marissa Giustina, Alexandra Mech, Sven Ramelow, Bernhard Wittman, Johannes Keffler, Joern Beyer, Adriana E Lita, Thomas Gerrits, Sae Woo Nam, Rupert Ursin, Anton Zeilinger, Brice R. Calkins
Abstract: The violation of a Bell inequality is an experimental observation that forces the abandonment of a local realistic viewpoint - namely, one in which physical properties are (probabilistically) defined before and independently of measurement, and in ...

17. Experimental demonstration of a receiver beating the standard quantum limit for multiple nonorthogonal coherent-state discrimination
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 1/6/2013
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: The measurement of the state of a quantum system with inherent quantum uncertainty (noise) approaching the ultimate physical limits is of both technological and fundamental interest. Quantum noise prevents any mutually nonorthogonal quantum states ...

18. Preface to Proceedings of the International Conference Quantum Theory: Reconsideration of Foundations-6 (QTRF6) held in Vaxjo, Sweden, 11-14 June 2012
Topic: Quantum Physics
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 ...

19. Quantum interference between two single photons of different microwave frequencies
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 4/20/2012
Authors: Francois E. (Francois) Nguyen, Eva A. (Eva) 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 ...

20. Quantum interface between an electrical circuit and a single atom
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 3/30/2012
Authors: Jacob M Taylor, Dvir Kafri, David Kielpinski, G J Milburn, M J Woolley
Abstract: Atomic systems are remarkably well suited to storage and processing of quantum information. However, their properties are tightly constrained by physical law, causing difficulties in interfacing to optical or electronic devices. On the other hand, q ...
