Article
We present an extended model for the lattice-induced light shifts of the clock frequency in optical lattice clocks, applicable to a wide range of operating conditions. The model extensions cover radial motional states with sufficient energies to invalidate the harmonic approximation of the confining potential. We reevaluate lattice-induced light sh...
Article
We propose a deterministic, measurement-free implementation of a cubic phase gate for continuous- variable quantum information processing. In our scheme, the applications of displacement and squeezing operations allow us to engineer the effective evolution of the quantum state propagating through an optical Kerr nonlinearity. Under appropriate cond...
Preprint
We introduce a theoretical framework based on Fano's theory of discrete-continuum interactions to analyze the quantum dynamics of broadband parametric downconversion (PDC) in the few-pump-photon regime of nonlinear quantum nanophotonics. Applying this unified analytic approach to 1D $\chi^{(2)}$-nonlinear waveguides, we find a host of remarkable dy...
Article
Ultra-short pulses propagating in nonlinear nanophotonic waveguides can simultaneously leverage both temporal and spatial field confinement, promising a route towards single-photon nonlinearities in an all-photonic platform. In this multimode quantum regime, however, faithful numerical simulations of pulse dynamics naively require a representation...
Preprint
We study the emergence of non-Gaussian quantum features in pulsed squeezed light generation with a mesoscopic number (i.e., dozens to hundreds) of pump photons. Due to the strong optical nonlinearities necessarily involved in this regime, squeezing occurs alongside significant pump depletion, compromising the predictions made by conventional semicl...
Preprint
The realization of deterministic photon-photon gates is a central goal in optical quantum computation and engineering. While solid-state nonlinear optics offers a scalable, room temperature solution, weak material nonlinearities lead to extremely demanding requirements on optical loss and confinement, which to date have not been realized. In this w...
Preprint
The advent of dispersion-engineered and highly nonlinear nanophotonics is expected to open up an all-optical path towards the strong-interaction regime of quantum optics by combining high transverse field confinement with ultra-short-pulse operation. Obtaining a full understanding of photon dynamics in such broadband devices, however, poses major c...

Conference Paper
We propose a measurement-free construction of a cubic phase gate based on a Kerr nonlinearity and Gaussian transformations. Experimental feasibility is discussed for pulsed nanophotonic waveguides where quantum states are encoded into quantum solitons.

Article
We propose a theoretical scheme to deterministically generate Fock states in a Kerr cavity through adiabatic variation of the driving field strength and the cavity detuning. We show that the required time to generate an n-photon Fock state scales as the square root of n. Requirements for the Kerr coefficient relative to the system decoherence rate...
Preprint
We present a new scheme to efficiently establish entanglement between optical modes in a time-multiplexed coherent Ising machine (CIM) by means of nonlocal measurement and feedback. We numerically simulate and evaluate the generation of steady-state entanglement in a system with nearest-neighbor interactions on a 1D ring, and we compare the results...

We present a theoretical study of the optical response of a nonlinear oscillator formed by coupling a metal nanoparticle local surface plasmon resonance to excitonic degrees of freedom in a monolayer transition-metal dichalcogenide. We show that the combined system should exhibit strong anharmonicity in its low-lying states, predicting for example...

We propose a theoretical scheme to deterministically generate Fock states in a Kerr cavity thorough adiabatic variation of the driving field strength and the cavity detuning. We show that the required time to generate a $n$-photon Fock state scales as the square root of $n$. Requirements for the Kerr coefficient relative to the system decoherence r...
Article
We introduce a description of Ramsey spectra under atomic interactions as a sum of decomposed components with differing dependence on interaction parameters. This description enables intuitive understanding of the loss of contrast and asymmetry of Ramsey spectra. We derive a quantitative relationship between the asymmetry and atomic interaction par...
Conference Paper
