We observe that a weak guided light field transmitted through an ensemble of atoms coupled to an optical nanofiber exhibits quadrature squeezing. From the measured squeezing spectrum we gain direct access to the phase and amplitude of the energy-time entangled part of the two-photon wave function which arises from the strongly correlated transport of photons through the ensemble. For small atomic ensembles we observe a spectrum close to the line shape of the atomic transition, while sidebands… Expand

Collective radiative dynamics of an ensemble of cold atoms coupled to an optical waveguide
We experimentally and theoretically investigate collective radiative effects in an ensemble of cold atoms coupled to a single-mode optical nanofiber. Our analysis unveils the microscopic dynamics ofExpand
Beyond the Tavis-Cummings model: revisiting cavity QED with atomic ensembles
The interaction of an ensemble of N two-level atoms with a single mode electromagnetic field is described by the Tavis-Cummings model. There, the collectively enhanced light-matter coupling strengthExpand


Quantum Noise: Basic Measurements and Techniques
This chapter focuses on the measurement of quantum noise, that is the fundamental noise we observe on the photocurrent when we detect optical beams with a large coherent amplitude usingExpand
Many graphics and vision problems can be expressed as non-linear least squares optimizations of objective functions over visual data, such as images and meshes. The mathematical descriptions of theseExpand
