Photon-echo quantum memories in inhomogeneously broadened two-level atoms

McAuslan, D.L; Ledingham, Patrick M.; Naylor, William R.; Beavan, Sarah; Hedges, Morgan; Sellars, Matthew; Longdell, Jevon Joseph


Here, we propose a solid-state quantum memory that does not require spectral holeburning, instead using strong rephasing pulses like traditional photon-echo techniques. The memory uses external broadening fields to reduce the optical depth and so switch off the collective atom-light interaction when desired. The proposed memory should allow operation with reasonable efficiency in a much broader range of material systems, for instance Er3+ doped crystals which have a transition at 1.5 μm.
