A new paradigm for quantum interferometry is found that is different from the noisereduction mechanism in squeezed state interferometry. Furthermore, thenonlinear process...

  5. OSA Traveling Lecturer Seminar 2015 featuring Alexey V. Akimov

    Leader of Quantum Simulators Integrated Optics group at Russian Quantum Center & Research Scientist at Harvard University Towards light-spin interface for NV center in diamond Abstract: One of the key challenges in modern quantum information processing is to enable efficient transfer of quantum information stored in atomic-like systems into almost perfect information carriers - photons.

  6. Quantum Photonics Faculty Candidate Seminar- Professor Zubin Jacob

    Over the last few years, my group has been developing the fluctuational and quantum electrodynamics of polaritons - collective oscillations of light and matter. This endeavor led us to discover a unique singular resonance in moving media that causes a giant increase in vacuum friction, the fluctuationaldrag force exerted by vacuum on bodies in relative motion.  I will discuss the possibility of observing such a resonance and its underlying connections to other QED phenomena. These...
