    ABSTRACT: The influences of intracavity nonlinear losses on the intensity noise of output lasers are theoretically and experimentally investigated with an all-solid-state single-frequency laser with high gain. By means of tuning the temperature of a nonlinear crystal deliberately placed inside the laser resonator, the intracavity nonlinear loss of the laser is controlled. The dependence of the frequency and amplitude of the resonant relaxation oscillation peak on the nonlinear loss is studied in detail for both fundamental-wave (FW) and second-harmonic-wave (SHW). We find that, by controlling the temperature of the nonlinear crystal, the intensity noises of the laser can be transferred between FW and SHW. The theoretical predictions are in good agreement with the experimental measurements. The obtained results can be applied to manipulate and suppress the laser noises.

    ABSTRACT: Quantum error correction protects the quantum state against noise and decoherence in quantum communication and quantum computation, which enables one to perform fault-torrent quantum information processing. We experimentally demonstrate a quantum error correction scheme with a five-wave-packet code against a single stochastic error, the original theoretical model of which was firstly proposed by S. L. Braunstein and T. A. Walker. Five submodes of a continuous variable cluster entangled state of light are used for five encoding channels. Especially, in our encoding scheme the information of the input state is only distributed on three of the five channels and thus any error appearing in the remained two channels never affects the output state, i.e. the output quantum state is immune from the error in the two channels. The stochastic error on a single channel is corrected for both vacuum and squeezed input states and the achieved fidelities of the output states are beyond the corresponding classical limit.

    ABSTRACT: The generation and storage of entangled photons play important roles in quantum information technique. Spontaneous Raman scattering (SRS) in atomic ensembles provides a promising method to generate entangled photons capable of storage. In the past experiments, a spin-wave-photon entangled state is produced via SRS in an atomic ensemble, with which a pair of entangled photons is obtained. Here, we report a scheme of simultaneously generating two spin-wave-photon entangled states in an atomic ensemble by collecting Stokes photons at two different directions. Based on the obtained two atom-photon entangled sources, we generate a three-photon GHZ polarization-entangled state and conditionally prepare a polarization-entangled photon pair, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: A balanced homodyne detector, with a maximum common mode rejection ratio and clearance of 75.2 dB and 37 dB, is experimentally obtained with two arbitrary photodiodes of the same model. On the basis of self-subtraction photodetector scheme, we divide the influence of photodiodes on the common mode rejection ratio into two parts, including magnitude and phase of output signal. The discrepancy of quantum efficiency and dark current affects magnitude of output signal of photodiodes, which is compensated by adjusting the splitter ratio. The difference of the equivalent capacitance and resistance affects the phase of output signal of photodiodes, which is compensated by the differential fine tuning circuit and adjustable bias voltage circuit. With these designs, the developed homodyne detector can be used for measuring accurately the squeezed state.

    ABSTRACT: The non-measurement based coherent feedback control (CFC) is a control method without introducing any backaction noise into the controlled system, thus is specially suitable to manipulate various quantum optical systems for preparing nonclassical states of light. By simply tuning the transmissivity of an optical controller in a CFC loop attached to a non-degenerate optical parametric amplifier (NOPA), the quantum entanglement degree of the output optical entangled state of the system is improved. At the same time, the threshold pump power of the NOPA is reduced also. The experimental results are in reasonable agreement with the theoretical expectation.

    ABSTRACT: Entangled state of light is one of the essential quantum resources in quantum information science and technology. Especially, when the fundamental principle experiments have been achieved in labs and the applications of continuous variable quantum information in the real world are considered, it is crucial to design and construct the generation devices of entangled states with high entanglement and compact configuration. We have designed and built an efficient and compact light source of entangled state, which is a non-degenerate optical parametric amplifier (NOPA) with the triple resonance of the pump and two subharmonic modes. A wedged type-II KTP crystal inside the NOPA is used for implementing frequency-down-conversion of the pump field to generate the optical entangled state and achieving the dispersion compensation between the pump and the subharmonic waves. The EPR entangled state of light with quantum correlations of 8.4 dB for both amplitude and phase quadratures are experimentally produced by a single NOPA under the pump power of 75 mW.

    ABSTRACT: The thermal lens effect of the TGG crystal is investigated theoretically and experimentally. The theoretical analysis is demonstrated by the experimental measurements on a home-made frequency-doubled Nd:YVO4 laser with single-frequency operation. In the presence of the thermal lens effect of the TGG crystal, the output power can be optimized by shortening the distance between the cavity mirrors of M3 and M4 (two plane-concave mirrors placed at two sides of the second-harmonic generator). Consequently, a single-frequency laser with output power of 18.7 W at 532 nm is obtained. The power stability and the beam quality M2 are better than ±0.4% for 5 hours and 1.08, respectively. Meanwhile, we observe and discuss a bistability-like phenomenon of the laser in the cases of increasing and decreasing the incident pump power.

    ABSTRACT: A single frequency Ti:sapphire (Ti:S) laser with continuous frequency-tuning and low intensity noise is presented, in which an extra nonlinear (NL) loss crystal is placed inside the resonator instead of the traditional etalon locking system. When a NL crystal is inserted into a home-made Ti:S laser resonator, the single frequency laser of 1.27 W at 795 nm with a continuous frequency-tuning range of 48 GHz is realized under the pump level of 11.27 W and the intensity noise at the lower frequencies is successfully suppressed.

    ABSTRACT: Single-mode squeezing and Fourier transformation operations are two essential logical gates in continuous-variable quantum computation, which have been experimentally implemented by means of an optical four-mode cluster state. In this paper, we present a simpler and more efficient protocol based on the use of Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen two-mode entangled states to realize the same operations. The theoretical calculations and the experimental results demonstrate that the presented scheme not only decreases the requirement to the resource quantum states at the largest extent but also enhances significantly the squeezing degree and the fidelity of the resultant modes under an identical resource condition. That is because in our system the influence of the excess noises deriving from the imperfect squeezing of the resource states is degraded. The gate operations applying two-mode entanglement can be utilized as a basic element in a future quantum computer involving a large-scale cluster state.

    ABSTRACT: The optimal physical conditions of single-longitudinal-mode (SLM) operation for continuous-wave all-solid-state lasers with high output powers are investigated theoretically and experimentally. The dependence of the operation conditions on the linear and nonlinear intracavity losses of the laser is numerically calculated. The theoretical analysis is demonstrated by the experimental measurements on a home-made Nd:YVO<sub>4</sub> laser. The stable SLM output up to 33.7 W with optical-optical conversion efficiency of 44.9% at 1064 nm wavelength is recorded for over 7 h. The experimental results are in good agreement with the theoretical expectation.

    ABSTRACT: Long-lived and high-fidelity memory for photonic polarization qubit (PPQ) is crucial for constructing quantum networks. Here we present an EIT-based millisecond storage system in which a moderate magnetic field is applied on a cold-atom cloud to lift Zeeman degeneracy. PPQ states are stored as two magnetic-field-insensitive spin waves. Especially, the influence of magnetic-field-sensitive spin waves on the storage performances is almost totally avoided. The measured average fidelities of polarization states are 98.6% at 200 us and 78.4% at 4.5 ms, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: Measurement-based one-way quantum computation using cluster states as resources provides an efficient model to perform computation and information processing of quantum codes. Arbitrary Gaussian quantum computation can be implemented sufficiently by long single-mode and two-mode gate sequences. However, continuous variable gate sequences have not been realized so far due to an absence of cluster states larger than four submodes. Here we present the first continuous variable gate sequence consisting of a single-mode squeezing gate and a two-mode controlled-phase gate based on a six-mode cluster state. The quantum property of this gate sequence is confirmed by the fidelities and the quantum entanglement of two output modes, which depend on both the squeezing and controlled-phase gates. The experiment demonstrates the feasibility of implementing Gaussian quantum computation by means of accessible gate sequences.

    ABSTRACT: We present a diode-pumped broadband tunable single-frequency and frequency-doubling Nd:YVO<sub>4</sub>/LBO laser with high output power of 10.5 W in all tuning ranges around 532 nm. An etalon placed inside the resonator and the laser gain medium in a wedge shape are used for the coarse- and fine-tuning elements, respectively. By independently scanning the temperatures of the two tuning elements, broadband tunable ranges of 12 and 24 GHz have been achieved, respectively, for the fundamental and the second-harmonic waves.

    ABSTRACT: Multi-color entangled states of light including low-loss optical fiber transmission and atomic resonance frequencies are essential resources for future quantum information network. We present the experimental achievement on the three-color entanglement generation at 852 nm, 1550 nm and 1440 nm wavelengths for optical continuous variables. The entanglement generation system consists of two cascaded non-degenerated optical parametric oscillators (NOPOs). The flexible selectivity of nonlinear crystals in the two NOPOs and the tunable property of NOPO provide large freedom for the frequency selection of three entangled optical beams, so the present system is possible to be developed as practical devices used for quantum information networks with atomic storage units and long fiber transmission lines.

    ABSTRACT: The superactivation of multipartite bound entanglement (BE) is a special protocol proposed by Shor et al. in 2003, which can distill Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) entanglement states between two subsystems of two multipartite BE states. Here we present the first experimental realization of the superactivation of the BE state, in which two copies of the four-partite unlockable BE state in a continuous-variable regime are used. Coupling two thermal states with Gaussian noises into two submodes of an EPR entangled state on two 50-50 beam splitters respectively, the four output optical modes form a four-partite unlocklable BE state. Using two EPR entangled states, we experimentally produce two BE states first. Then through a superactivation operation involving measurements and feedback on the two BE states, an EPR entangled state is distilled out between two designated parties of the two four-partite BE states. The experiment demonstrates the superadditivity of quantum entanglement as the individual BE state cannot be distilled, only two BE states together can be distilled.
