Nonclassical photon streams using rephased amplified spontaneous emission

Ledingham, Patrick M.; Naylor, William R.; Longdell, Jevon Joseph; Beavan, Sarah; Sellars, Matthew


We present a fully quantum mechanical treatment of optically rephased photon echoes. These echoes exhibit noise due to amplified spontaneous emission; however, this noise can be seen as a consequence of the entanglement between the atoms and the output light. With a rephasing pulse one can get an "echo" of the amplified spontaneous emission, leading to light with nonclassical correlations at points separated in time, which is of interest in the context of building wide bandwith quantum...[Show more]
