Quantum non-Gaussian light from a single atom dispersively coupled to a cavity

  title={Quantum non-Gaussian light from a single atom dispersively coupled to a cavity},
  author={Jitendra Kumar Verma and Luk'avs Lachman and Radim Filip},
Many applications in quantum communication, sensing and computation need provable quantum non-Gaussian light. Recently, such light witnessed by a negative Wigner function has been estimated using homodyne tomography from a single atom dispersively coupled to a highfinesse cavity [1]. It opens an investigation of quantum non-Gaussian light for many experiments with atoms and solidstate emitters. However, at their early stage, an atom or emitter in a cavity system with different channels to the… Expand

Quantum non-Gaussianity from a large ensemble of single photon emitters.
A newly introduced hierarchy of criteria of quantum non-Gaussianity is investigated and it is predicted this attribute can be observed on light emitted from many single photon emitters, even if the light undergoes realistic optical losses. Expand
A gated quantum dot strongly coupled to an optical microcavity
A gated, ultralow-loss, frequency-tunable microcavity device that establishes a route to the development of semiconductor-based quantum photonics, such as single-photon sources and photon–photon gates. Expand
Deterministic creation of entangled atom–light Schrödinger-cat states
Quantum physics allows for entanglement between microscopic and macroscopic objects, described by discrete and continuous variables, respectively. As in Schrödinger’s famous cat gedanken experiment,Expand
Highly indistinguishable and strongly entangled photons from symmetric GaAs quantum dots
GaAs quantum dots can emit triggered polarization-entangled photons with high purity, which shows that GaAs might be the material of choice for quantum-dot entanglement sources in future quantum technologies. Expand
Near-unity coupling efficiency of a quantum emitter to a photonic crystal waveguide.
The β factor is found to be remarkably robust to variations in position and emission wavelength of the quantum dots, and demonstrates the extraordinary potential of photonic crystal waveguides for highly efficient single-photon generation and on-chip photon-Photon interaction. Expand
Pure single photons from a trapped atom source
Single atoms or atom-like emitters are the purest source of on-demand single photons, they are intrinsically incapable of multi-photon emission. To demonstrate this degree of purity we have realizedExpand
Hyperentanglement of photons emitted by a quantum dot
Demonstration of polarization and time-bin hyper-entangled photons emitted from a single quantum dot and two-photon resonant and coherent excitation on a quantum dot system with marginal fine structure splitting yield fidelities to the maximally entangled state. Expand
Sufficiency of quantum non-Gaussianity for discrete-variable quantum key distribution over noisy channels
Quantum key distribution can be enhanced and extended if nonclassical single-photon states of light are used. We study a connection between the security of quantum key distribution and quantumExpand
Controlling the dynamics of spontaneous emission from quantum dots by photonic crystals
This work shows that the spectral distribution and time-dependent decay of light emitted from excitons confined in the quantum dots are controlled by the host photonic crystal, providing a basis for all-solid-state dynamic control of optical quantum systems. Expand
Faithful Hierarchy of Genuine n-Photon Quantum Non-Gaussian Light.
A faithful hierarchy of genuine n-photon quantum non-Gaussian light is proposed and experimentally verified to demonstrate a direct applicability of the hierarchy for a large class of real states. Expand
