1. Adapting the Poisson-Influenced K-Means Algorithm for a Larger User Base
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 11/19/2015
Authors: Brian P. Morris, Zachary H Levine
Abstract: A superconducting transition edge sensor (TES) can be a useful tool for counting the number of photons in a highly attenuated pulse of light, but it requires calibration for its outputs to be interpretable as photon numbers. The Poisson-Influenced K- ...

2. Optomechanical Raman-Ratio Thermometry
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/9/2015
Authors: Katarina Cicak, Tom Purdy, Pen Li Yu, Nir Kampel, Bob Peterson, Raymond Wiley Simmonds, Cindy Regal
Abstract: The temperature dependence of the asymmetry between Stokes and anti-Stokes Raman scattering can be exploited for self-calibrating, optically-based thermometry. In the context of cavity optomechanics, we observe the cavity-enhanced scattering of light ...

3. Narrow linewidth source of greatly non-degenerate photon pairs for quantum repeaters from a short singly-resonant cavity
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 8/26/2015
Authors: Oliver T Slattery, Paulina S Kuo, Lijun Ma, Xiao Tang
Abstract: Quantum repeaters require entangled photon pair sources to connect flying qubits in the telecommunication band and stationary qubits at atomic transition wavelengths and linewidths for quantum memories. We have experimentally implemented a narrow ...

4. High-dimensional hyperentanglement of mode-locked two-photon states
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 6/29/2015
Authors: Zhenda Xie, Tian Zhong, Sajan Shrestha, XinAn Xu, Junlin Liang, Yan-Xiao Gong, Allessandro Restelli, Jeffrey Shapiro, Franco N.C. Wong, Chee Wei Wong, Joshua C Bienfang
Abstract: Quantum entanglement is the fundamental resource for quantum information processing and communications, including secure data rates with higher capacities and better error resilience [1-9]. In dense-coded quantum communication c ...

5. Phonon Assisted Gain in a Semiconductor Quantum Dot Maser
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 5/13/2015
Authors: Michael Gullans, Yinyiu Liu, George Stehlik, Jason Petta, Jacob M Taylor
Abstract: We develop a microscopic model for the recently demonstrated double quantum dot (DQD) maser. In characterizing the gain of this device we find that, in addition to the direct stimulated emission of photons, there is a large contribution from transiti ...

6. High-efficiency superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors fabricated from MoSi thin-films
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 4/10/2015
Authors: Varun Boehm Verma, Boris Korzh, Felix Bussieres, Robert D Horansky, Shellee Dawn Dyer, Adriana E Lita, Igor Vayshenker, Francesco Marsili, Matthew D. Shaw, Hugo Zbinden, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: We demonstrate high-efficiency superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) fabricated from MoSi thin-films. We measure a maximum system detection efficiency (SDE) of 87 {+ or -} 0.5 % at 1542 nm at a temperature of 0.7 K, with a jitte ...

7. Highly efficient generation of single-mode photon pairs from a crystalline whispering-gallery-mode resonator source
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 2/11/2015
Authors: Michael Fortsch, Gerhard Schunk, Josef Furst, Dmitry Strekalov, Thomas Gerrits, Martin J Stevens, Florian Sedlmeir, Harald G. L. Schwefel, Gerd Leuchs, Christoph Marquardt
Abstract: We report on the highly-efficient generation of narrow-band pair-photons in one single spatiotemporal mode using parametric down-conversion in a crystalline whispering gallery mode resonator. We developed the requirements on phase-matching conditio ...

8. Photon Number Resolution Enables Quantum Receiver for Realistic Coherent Optical Communications
Topic: Quantum Optics
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 ...

9. Sub-wavelength interference of thermal light with photon-number resolving detection
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/10/2014
Authors: Yanhua (Yanhua) Zhai, Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: We examine the spatial correlation of thermal-light diffracted through a double-slit using photon-number-resolved detection to directly measure high-order correlations. We observe sinusoidal modulations of the spatial coherence in the diffracted ligh ...

10. Environment-assisted quantum control of a solid state spin via 2-color coherent dark states
Topic: Quantum Optics
Published: 9/7/2014
Authors: Jacob M Taylor, Jack Hansom, Carsten Schulte, Claire Le Gall, Clemens Matthiesen, Edmund Clarke, Maxime Hugues, Mete Atature
Abstract: Semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) offer an efficient and scalable interface between single spins and optical photons. However, the solid-state environment of the QD represents an inherent source of noise, generally considered detrimental to coherent c ...
