We have considered theoretically the feasibility of the broadband quantum memory based on the resonant tripod-type atomic configuration. In this case, the writing of a signal field is carried out simultaneously into two channels, and characterized by an excitation of two spin waves of the atomic ensemble. With simultaneous read out from both channels quantum properties of the original signal are mapped on the retrieval pulse no worse than in the case of memory based on Lambda-type atomic…

Manipulation of quantum states in a memory cell: controllable Mach–Zehnder interferometer
In this article, we consider the possibility of manipulation of quantum signals, ensured by the use of the tripod-type atomic memory cell. We show that depending on a configuration of driving fields
Two-photon bunching inside a quantum memory cell
We demonstrate the effect of interference, similar to the Hong-Ou-Mandel effect, for two single-photon pulses by writing them sequentially inside a quantum memory cell in a tripod configuration.

We propose a method to implement a quantum memory for light based on ensembles of two-level atoms. Our protocol is based on controlled reversible inhomogeneous broadening (CRIB), where an external

Experimental demonstration of spinor slow light
This study experimentally demonstrated a possible application of the double-tripod scheme as quantum memory/rotator for the two-colour qubit and suggests that the spinor slow light is a better method than a widely used scheme in the nonlinear frequency conversion.
Spectral multiplexing for scalable quantum photonics using an atomic frequency comb quantum memory and feed-forward control.
This work shows how to employ spectrally multiplexed states and memories with fixed storage times that allow such mapping between spectral modes, and demonstrates storage followed by the required feed-forward-controlled frequency manipulation.
Atomic thermal motion effect on efficiency of a high-speed quantum memory

AbstractWe present a general model for an atomic memory using ultra-short pulses of light, which allows both spatial and temporal multimode storage. The process involves the storage of a faint
