Investigations of optical coherence properties in an erbium-doped silicate fiber for quantum state storage
We studied optical coherence properties of the 1.53 lm telecommunication transition in an Er 3+ -doped silicate optical fiber through spectral holeburning and photon echoes. We find decoherence timesExpand
Can the oil and gas sector enable geothermal technologies? Socio-technical opportunities and complementarity failures in Alberta, Canada
Regions that produce and export fossil fuels experience strong carbon lock-in. Yet, successful fossil fuel sectors also equip a region with skills and resources that could promote the development ofExpand
Towards Long-Distance Quantum Communication
We study Erbium-doped LiNbO3waveguides for storage and readout of light pulses based on stimulated photon-echoes. Our results are promising in view of storage of single-photon quantum states asExpand
Spectral hole-burning spectroscopy in Nd3+: YVO4
We present spectral hole-burning measurements on the 879 nm, I-4(9/2) -> F-4(3/2) transition in Nd3+ : YVO4. We observe antiholes in the spectrum along with long lived spectral holes, whichExpand
Fidelity of an optical memory based on stimulated photon echoes.
We investigated the preservation of information encoded into the relative phase and amplitudes of optical pulses during storage and retrieval in an optical memory based on stimulated photon echo. ByExpand
State preparation by optical pumping in erbium-doped solids using stimulated emission and spin mixing
Erbium-doped solids are potential candidates for the realization of a quantum memory for photons at telecommunication wavelengths. The implementation of quantum memory proposals inExpand
Interference of multimode photon echoes generated in spatially separated solid-state atomic ensembles.
High-visibility interference of photon echoes generated in spatially separated solid-state atomic ensembles is demonstrated. The solid-state ensembles were LiNbO(3) waveguides doped with erbium ionsExpand
Zeeman-level lifetimes in Er 3+ :Y 2 SiO 5
We present measurements of Zeeman-level population lifetimes in Er3+:Y2SiO5 at low magnetic fields and low temperatures. Using spectral hole burning spectroscopy, we investigate the dynamics andExpand
Controlled Stark shifts in Er3+-doped crystalline and amorphous waveguides for quantum state storage
Abstract We present measurements of the linear Stark effect on the 4 I 15/2  →  4 I 13/2 transition in an Er 3+ -doped proton-exchanged LiNbO 3 crystalline waveguide and an Er 3+ -doped silicateExpand
Spectral hole-burning spectroscopy in Nd
We present spectral hole-burning measurements on the 879 nm, I9/2→ F3/2 transition in Nd :YVO4. We observe antiholes in the spectrum along with long lived spectral holes, which demonstrates opticalExpand
