  • A quantum light-matter interface with Rydberg polaritons in a cold atomic ensemble 

    Distante, Emanuele (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-03-24)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Nonlinear optics at the single-photon level enables deterministic photonphoton interaction, a long-standing goal in quantum photonics science. Besides its implication in fundamental aspects of physics, this would unlock ...
  • Storing single photons emitted by a quantum memory on a highly excited Rydberg state 

    Distante, Emanuele; Farrera, Pau; Padrón-Brito, Auxiliadora; Paredes-Barato, David; Heinze, Georg; Riedmatten, Hugues de (Nature, 2017-01-17)
    Open Access
    Strong interaction between two single photons is a long standing and important goal in quantum photonics. This would enable a new regime of nonlinear optics and unlock several applications in quantum information science, ...
