Storage and manipulation of optical information using gradient echo memory in warm vapours and cold ensembles

Sparkes, Benjamin Michael


Quantum memories for light lie at the heart of long-distance provably-secure communication [1], while containing the potential to help break current encryption methods [2], and allow better measurement of quantities than ever before [3]. Demand for a functioning quantum memory is therefore at a premium. Unfortunately, the same properties of light that make it such an effective carrier of quantum information make it difficult to store. Furthermore, by the laws of quantum mechanics, storage must...[Show more]
