Ultrafast Photonic Quantum Technologies: Photon Sources and Detectors

Date Do, 08.12.2011 - Do, 08.12.2011
Time 10.15
Speaker Dr. Brian J. Smith, University Lecturer and Tutorial Fellow, Department of Physics and Keble College, University of Oxford
Location Universität Bern, Institut für Angewandte Physik, Gebäude exakte Wissenschaften, Hörsaal B77, Sidlerstrasse 5, 3012 Bern
Program Quantum physics holds promise to enhance the performance of certain tasks beyond what is possible with only classical resources. These quantum-enhanced technologies, such as quantum computing, cryptography, and metrology, utilize nonclassical behavior of quantum systems to surpass the performance of their classical analogues. In both the classical and quantum domains, light is central to communications and sensing applications. Here I will discuss recent progress in the preparation of broadband quantum states of light, e.g. heralded single photons and squeezed states, as well as approaches to detecting such nonclassical states using photon-counting and homodyne detection.
