Storage and retrieval of collective excitations on a long-lived spin transition in a rare-earth ion-doped crystal

Goldschmidt, E A; Beavan, S E; Polyakov, S V; Migdall, A L; Sellars, M J


Robust, long-lived optical quantum memories are important components of many quantum information and communication protocols. We demonstrate coherent generation, storage, and retrieval of excitations on a long-lived spin transition via spontaneous Raman scattering in a rare-earth ion-doped crystal. We further study the time dynamics of the optical correlations in this system. This is the first demonstration of its kind in a solid and an enabling step toward realizing a solid-state quantum...[Show more]
