21. 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 ...

22. 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 ...

23. 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 ...

24. 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 ...

25. 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 ...

26. 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 ...

27. 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.

28. 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 ...

29. 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 ...

30. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensors for Quantum Optics
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 6/2/2015
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Adriana Eleni 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 ...
