Superconducting microwire detectors with single-photon sensitivity in the near-infrared

Author(s)
Jeffrey T. Chiles, Sonia M. Buckley, Adriana E. Lita, Varun B. Verma, Jeffrey M. Shainline, Richard P. Mirin, Sae Woo Nam, Jason Allmaras, Boris Korzh, Emma Wollman, Matthew Shaw
We report on the fabrication and characterization of single-photon-sensitive WSi superconducting detectors with wire widths from 1 υm to 3 υm. The devices

Quantum-enhanced interferometry with large heralded photon-number states

Author(s)
G Thekkadath, M.E. Mycroft, B.A. Bell, C.G. Wade, A. Eckstein, David Phillips, R.B Patel, A. Buraczewski, Adriana E. Lita, Thomas Gerrits, Sae Woo Nam, M. Stobinska, A.I. Lvovsky, Ian Walmsley
Quantum phenomena such as entanglement can improve fundamental limits on the sensitivity of a measurement probe. In optical interferometry, a probe consisting

Quantum interference enables constant-time quantum information processing

Author(s)
Thomas Gerrits, Sae Woo Nam, Adriana E. Lita, M. Stobinska, A. Buraczewski, M. Moore, W.R. Clements, J.J. Renema, W.S. Kolthammer, A. Eckstein, I.A. Walmsley
It is an open question how fast information processing can be performed and whether quantum effects can speed up the best existing solutions. Signal extraction

Integrated transition edge sensors on lithium niobate waveguides

Author(s)
Thomas Gerrits, Adriana E. Lita, Richard P. Mirin, Sae Woo Nam, Jan P. Hoepker, Stephan Krapick, Harald Herrmann, Raimund Ricken, Victor Quiring, Christine Silberhorn, Tim J. Bartley
We show the proof-of-principle detection of light at 1550 nm coupled evanescently from a lithium niobate waveguide to a superconducting transition edge sensor

Indistinguishable single-mode photons from spectrally engineered biphotons

Author(s)
Thomas Gerrits, Adriana E. Lita, Sae Woo Nam, Changchen Chen, Jane Heyes, Kyung-Han Hong, Jeffrey Shapiro, Franco N. Wong
We use pulsed spontaneous parametric down-conversion in KTiOPO4, with a Gaussian phasematching function and a transform-limited Gaussian pump, to achieve near
