Analytic treatment of controlled reversible inhomogeneous broadening quantum memories for light using two-level atoms

Longdell, J; Hetet, Gabriel; Lam, Ping Koy; Sellars, Matthew


It has recently been discovered that the optical analog of a gradient echo, in an optically thick material, could form the basis of an optical memory that is both completely efficient and noise-free. Here we present analytical calculations showing that this is the case. There is close analogy between the operation of the memory and an optical system with two beam splitters. We can use this analogy to calculate efficiencies as a function of optical depth for a number of quantum memory...[Show more]
