Programs and Projects
Sources, detectors and metrology

We develop and learn how to characterize non-classical sources and single-photon detectors. It turns out that detectors of single photons cannot … more

Single-photon Measurements

We use single-photons and/or single-photon detectors to aid different precision measurements and to improve accuracy. more

Quantum Biophotonics

Faint light detection is a staple in biology- used from systems biology research to bioassays for biomanufacturing and healthcare diagnostics. more

Memory

Critical to quantum information applications is the need to store a quantum state while other qbits are created or processed. more

Universal Quantum Bus

If quantum computers are ever to be realized, they likely will be made of different types of parts that will need to share information with one … more

Quantum Physics Theory

Theoretical work relevant to the determination of values of the fundamental constants, tests of bound-state quantum electrodynamics (QED), and … more

Software
Noncollinear phase matching in uniaxial and biaxial crystals

Although significant work has been done to characterize collinear phase matching and to present many of its applications, noncollinear phase … more

FPGA-based multicoincidence recipe and software

This project allows investigators to build their own data acquisition instruments to collect and statistically process data in real time, then … more

Old Version of FPGA

NOTE: THIS PAGE REFERS TO THE ORIGINAL VERSION OF THIS PROJECT. THE NEWEST VERSION, DATED JANUARY 2015, CAN BE FOUND HERE.   This first (and … more
