Quantum Correlation Measurements

Date: 
May 29, 2018 - 4:00pm
Speaker: 
Werner Vogel
Speaker's Institution: 
Institut für Physik, Universität Rostock, Germany
The experimental demonstration of photon antibunching was the first direct experimental demonstration of nonclassical light. It is noteworthy that this early experiment was based on normal- and time-ordered intensity correlation measurements, violating a classical Schwarz inequality. Until now, studies of nonclassical light are often restricted to considerations of statistical properties at a single point in time. In this talk, a universal approach is provided for the characterization of general space- and time-dependent quantum correlations of light.

Why I am optimistic about the silicon photonic route to quantum computing

Date: 
April 6, 2018 - 9:00am
Speaker: 
Terry Rudolph
Speaker's Institution: 
Imperial College London
A quantum computer of 100 logical qubits will require on the order of a million physical qubits, which in turn requires the ability to manufacture to high precision many millions of components. At present CMOS processes are the only way we (humans) have for doing such a thing. I will overview an "all-in-silicon" approach to quantum computing using single photons as the quantum information carriers which aims to remain fully CMOS compatible.

Can I get reimbursed for that? New Adventures in the New-Old Administrative Model

Date: 
April 9, 2018 - 4:00pm
Speaker: 
Brandy Todd
Speaker's Institution: 
University of Oregon

Changes are coming to the University of Oregon and OMQ. This seminar will address all of your burning questions about the changes to travel and purchasing for OMQ researchers. Questions such as:

  • Can I get reimbursed for a personal palanquin from my house to the airport?
  • What is the university’s stance on extra legroom for plush emotional support companions on business travel?

  • Did someone really fly a personal plane to an OMQ sponsored workshop?

  • What ever happened to Alvin Mk I?

Efficient fiber-coupled single-photon sources based on quantum dots

Date: 
February 26, 2018 - 4:00pm
Speaker: 
Raphael Daveau
Speaker's Institution: 
Niels Bohr Institute

Many photonic quantum information processing applications would benefit from a high brightness, fiber-coupled source of triggered single photons. Sources based on quantum dots coupled to nanophotonic waveguides are very promising candidates as they feature a near-unity emitter-waveguide coupling efficiency. The main challenge remains to implement an efficient way to transfer the photons off-chip to an optical fiber.

PT Symmetry and Exceptional Points in Open Systems

Date: 
February 12, 2018 - 4:00pm
Speaker: 
Perry Rice
Speaker's Institution: 
Quantum Optics and Quantum Information, Miami University

Many of the new wave of nanophotonic structures are described in terms of PT symmetry. Many interesting effects have been studied and observed based on this formalism. Originally developed for complex potentials, which may still yield real eigenvalues for the dynamics, it has use in systems with gain and loss. As we will show, the usual application of PT in optics is to describe mean field theory do not adequately describe quantum noise. It is essentially quantum trajectory theory without the jumps.

Optical quantum fingerprinting using higher-order interference

Date: 
February 5, 2018 - 4:00pm
Speaker: 
Michal Jachura
Speaker's Institution: 
University of Warsaw
We propose and discuss a novel optical quantum fingerprinting protocol which does not require a shared phase reference between the communicating parties. We show that the scaling of the protocol, in terms of transmittable classical information, is analogous to the recently proposed and demonstrated schemes based on coherent pulses and first-order optical interference [1,2]. The protocol performance is quantified with the help of Chernoff information.
