Photon-echo rephasing of spontaneous emission from an ensemble of rare-earth ions

Beavan, Sarah


This thesis explores the concept of photon-echo-rephasing of the spontaneous emission from an ensemble of atoms. This generates entangled photon pairs, with intermediate storage and on-demand recall of one photon of the pair. In the first instance, this has applications as a single photon source. A more advanced application is as a building-block of a quantum repeater protocol, which is essential for expanding the range and versatility of current quantum communication links. The system...[Show more]
