1. 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 ...

2. Conclusive quantum steering with superconducting transition-edge sensors
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 1/10/2012
Authors: Devin H Smith, Marcelo de Almeida, Gillett Geoff, Branciard Cyril, Allesandro Fedrizzi, Weinhold J Till, Adriana E Lita, Brice R. Calkins, Thomas Gerrits, Wiseman H, Sae Woo Nam, Andrew G White
Abstract: Quantum steering allows two parties to verify shared entanglement even if one measurement device is untrusted. A conclusive demonstration of steering through the violation of a steering inequality is of considerable fundamental interest and opens up ...

3. Differences Explained in Correlated-Photon Metrology Techniques
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 11/1/1999
Author: Alan L Migdall

4. Efficient Generation of Correlated Photon Pairs in a Microstructure Fiber
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 12/15/2005
Authors: Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall, L Wang
Abstract: We report efficient generation of correlated photon pairs through degenerate four-wave mixing in microstructure fibers. With 735.7 nm pump pulses producing conjugate signal (688.5 nm) and idler (789.8 nm) photons in an 1.8 m microstructure fiber, we ...

5. Efficient generation of correlated photon pairs in a microstructure fiber
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 12/15/2005
Authors: Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall, L Wang

6. 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 ...

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 NMN 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. 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 ...

9. High Accuracy Verification of a Correlated-Photon-Based Method for Determining Photon-Counting Detection Efficiency
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 2/19/2007
Authors: Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We have implemented and characterized an independent primary standard method for the calibration of detection efficiency of photon counting detectors. The method is based on a light source producing correlated photon pairs. We have determined, and mo ...

10. 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 ...
