Single photon production by rephased amplified spontaneous emission

Stevenson, Robin; Hush, Michael; Carvalho, Andre; Beavan, S.E.; Sellars, Matthew; Hope, Joseph


The production of single photons using rephased amplified spontaneous emission is examined. This process produces single photons on demand with high efficiency by detecting the spontaneous emission from an atomic ensemble, then applying a population-inverting pulse to rephase the ensemble and produce a photon echo of the spontaneous emission events. The theoretical limits on the efficiency of the production are determined for several variants of the scheme. For an ensemble of uniform optical...[Show more]
