1. 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.

2. 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 ...

3. 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 ...

4. 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 Eleni 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 ...

5. 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 Eleni 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 ...

6. 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 ...

7. Electron Vortex Beams with High Quanta of Orbital Angular Momentum
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 1/14/2011
Authors: Benjamin James McMorran, Amit Kumar Agrawal, Ian M. Anderson, Andrew A Herzing, Henri J Lezec, Jabez J McClelland, John Unguris
Abstract: Analogous to vortices in light optical beams, electron optical beams with helical wavefronts carry orbital angular momentum and promise new capabilities for electron microscopy and other applications. We use nanofabricated diffraction holograms in an ...

8. Preserving quantum coherence using optimized open-loop control techniques
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 5/16/2010
Authors: Michael J. Biercuk, Hermann Uys, Aaron Vandevender, Nobuyasu Shiga, Wayne M Itano, John J Bollinger
Abstract: We describe experimental and theoretical studies of open-loop quantum control techniques known as dynamical decoupling (DD) for the suppression of decoherence-induced errors in quantum systems. Our experiments on trapped atomic ion qubits demonstra ...

9. Mode Expansion and Bragg Filtering Enable a High-Fidelity Fiber-Based Photon-Pair Source
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 11/9/2009
Authors: Alexander E. Ling, Jun Chen, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We report the development of a fiber-based single spatial mode source of photon-pairs where the efficiency of extracting photon-pairs is 15x better than a previous implementation [16]. This critical improvement in efficiency enabled a spectrally bri ...

10. Electromagnetically induced transparency in a superconducting three-level system
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 4/16/2009
Authors: Mika Sillanpaa, Katarina Cicak, Fabio Altomare, Jae Park, Raymond Wiley Simmonds, Jian Li, G. S. Paraoanu, Pertti Hakonen
Abstract: When a three-level quantum system is irradiated by an intense coupling field resonant with two of the three possible transitions, the resonant absorption of the system from its ground state by an additional radiation field is suppressed. This effec ...
