Quantum photonics with solids and atoms
(Nature Publishing Group, 2015-01-19)
Open AccessControlling the energy flow processes and the associated energy relaxation rates of a light emitter is of fundamental interest and has many applications in the fields of quantum optics, photovoltaics, photodetection, ...
Open AccessWe demonstrate the first solid-state spin-wave optical quantum memory with on-demand read-out. Using the full atomic frequency comb scheme in a Pr3þ∶Y2SiO5 crystal, we store weak coherent pulses at the single-photon level ...
