21. Overwhelming thermomechanical motion with microwave radiation pressure shot noise
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 8/21/2015
Authors: John D Teufel, Florent Quentin Lecocq, Raymond Wiley Simmonds
Abstract: We measure the fundamental noise processes associated with a continuous linear position measurement of a micromechanical membrane incorporated in a microwave cavity optomechanical circuit. We observe the trade-o ff between the two fundamental sou ...

22. 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 ...

23. 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 ...

24. 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 ...

25. 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 ...

26. Quantum Nondemolition Measurement of a Nonclassical State of a Massive Object
Topic: Quantum Physics
Published: 12/7/2015
Authors: Florent Quentin Lecocq, Jeremy B Clark, Raymond Wiley Simmonds, Jose Alberto Aumentado, John D Teufel
Abstract: By coupling a macroscopic mechanical oscillator to two microwave cavities, we simultaneously prepare and monitor a nonclassical steady state of mechanical motion. In each cavity, correlated radiation pressure forces induced by two coherent drives ...

27. 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 ...

28. 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 ...

29. 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 ...

30. 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.
