11. 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 a microstructure fiber. With 735.7 nm pump pulses producing correlated signal (688.5 nm) and idler (789.8 nm) photons in a 1.8 m microstructure fiber, we ...

12. 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 ...

13. 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 ...

14. 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 Elohim 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 ...

15. 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 ...

16. High Fidelity Transport of Trapped-Ion Qubits through an X-Junction Trap Array
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 4/17/2009
Authors: Brad Rodney Blakestad, Aaron Vandevender, Christian Ospelkaus, Jason Amini, Joseph Wright Britton, Dietrich G Leibfried, David J Wineland
Abstract: Trapped ions are a useful system for studying the elements of quantum information processing. Simple alogrithms have been demonstrated, but scaling to much larter tasks requires the ability to manipulate many qubits. To achieve this, ions could be di ...

17. Improved implementation of the Alicki Van Ryn nonclassicality test for a single particle using Si detectors
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 4/15/2009
Authors: Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall, Giorgio Brida, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Marco Genovese, Fabrizio Piacentini, V Schettini, Nicolas Gisin
Abstract: Recently a test of nonclassicality for a single qubit was proposed R. Alicki and N. Van Ryn, J. Phys, A: Math. Theor. 41, 062001 2008. We present an optimized experimental realization of this test leading to a 46standard deviation violation of cl ...

18. Improved multiplexed Infrared Single Photon Detectors
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 8/11/2008
Authors: Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall, V Schettini, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Giorgio Brida, F Piacentini
Abstract: We discuss a scheme for a photon-counting detection system that overcomes the difficulties of photon-counting at high rates at telecom wavelengths. Our method uses an array of N detectors and a 1-by-N optical switch with a control circuit to direct i ...

19. Introduction to Journal of Modern Optics Special Issue on Single Photon: Sources, Detectors, Applications and Measurement Methods
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 1/20/2007
Authors: J Cheung, Alan L Migdall, Stefania Castelletto
Abstract: In October 2005, a 2-day follow up workshop, Single photon: sources, detectors, applications and measurement methods, was held at the NPL (National Physical Laboratory, UK). The focus for this workshop was to report on the key developments since the ...

20. 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 ...
