IQUIST seminar: Paul Kwiat "Quantum Multiplexing: It's about time"

Speaker Prof. Paul Kwiat, Illinois Physics
Date: 7/14/2020
Time: 11 a.m.
Event Contact: Becky McDuffee
Sponsor: IQUIST
Event Type: Seminar/Symposium

Despite their many applications over the last decades, entangled and single-photon sources from probabilistic sources such as spontaneous parametric downconversion have limited performance due to the presence of unwanted multi-pair events.  For example, it is not possible to produce a heralded single photon with a probability exceeding 25%.  However, by incorporating low-loss multiplexing (in our case, time-bin multiplexing), one can greatly enhance device performance. We will review our recent work in this area, and speculate about the future.
