Friday 23 Feb 2018: The nonlinear route to nonclassical light
Peter Moseley - Bath
Newman Red 12:30-13:30
The development of higher-performance sources of nonclassical light is a pressing issue for photonic quantum information technologies. I will discuss recent progress in the field of photon-pair sources based on nonlinear optics and present the latest results from the University of Bath. We are developing sources incorporating dispersion-engineered photonic crystal fibre, novel filtering techniques, and active switching to generate high-purity heralded photons in an all-fibre architecture.
