Quantum Tomography Subtleties
With reduced statistical error, systematic effects
   become the dominant source of error:
• Imprecise waveplates
   –   178° phase
   –   Wedged optics
• Accidental coincidences
• Laser intensity drift
• Etc., etc.
We now have available for upload our suite of
   quantum tomography programs (MATLab):
www.physics.uiuc.edu/Research/QI/Photonics/Tomography
        (please email comments, other relevant links)
Bell Tests (more/less than tomography)
•     The density matrix includes full description of
      the quantum system.
•     The measurements needed to estimate the
      density matrix (e.g., HH, HV, HD, VA, etc.)
      are not sufficient to violate Bell’s inequality.

quantum cryptography, novel quantum communication protocols




Advantagess to 7.9 s delay;
So far: 0.5
• High bandwidth (~5 nm) -- limitedRmirror~ reshaping
                     T ~ 90-7% ( pulse 99.83%)
• Polarization non-decohering
Clean/replace mirrors  Rmirror = 99.99%  T(10s) > 90%
• Adjustable time delay* (10 ns -- 10 s)
Process tomography of 3.9-s system:
• Low loss (with custom mirror coatings)
        >99% pure
• Store multiple k-vectors, complex spatial modes
        mostly sz rotation (43˚); easily corrected w. tilted WP
  *Adjustment is performed by altering the separation and twist angle
 Switchable Low-loss Memory
Switchable cavity:

       High-Efficiency Single-Photon Detectors
      • Solid State Photomultipliers (SSPMs)
      • Visible Light Photon Counters (VLPCs)

                 Highlights:                               SSPMs
                 • SSPMs originally developed by Rockwell for
                 IR military applications
  VLPCs          • VLPCs are their IR desensitized successors
                 • Very high inferred efficiency (~95%)
                 • Multi-photon detection capability
The Need:             [Takeuchi et al. APL 74, 1063 (1999)]

• High count rate entanglement source
• Single-photon source trigger detector
• Frequency upconversion detector
• Optical Quantum Computing (OQC)
        VLPCs / SSPMs Research Directions
Past performance:
• Extremely high inferred detection efficiency (~95 ± 5%)
• Efficiency limited to < 88% due to in-coupling losses

Our Current Research:
• Gain maximum efficiency and enhanced photon-counting
capabilities by optimizing
   — in-coupling mechanisms  new fibers, custom coatings
   — cryogenics  new dewar designs
   — electronics  new low-noise amplifiers, cryogenic amps
