A self-validated detector for characterization of quantum network components



Anouar Rahmouni, Thomas Gerrits, Alan Migdall, Oliver T. Slattery, Ping-Shine Shaw, Joseph P. Rice


We are developing a nearly polarization-independent, low-cost optical trap detector between 1000 nm and 1550 nm for optical power measurements. A NIST-traceable optical power calibration of this trap detector showed a promising result.
