Efficient Quantum Frequency for Advanced Optical Communications

Conceive and develop methods and for substantially improving the performance of signal processing in nonlinear devices. Of particular interest is technologies suitable for quantum processing such as near-100%-efficient frequency conversion.

Areas for include achieving nonlinear with precisely tailored spectra, reducing power for driving such processes, single and few spatial-mode waveguides ultralow level of background reducing end-to-end loss, and packaging of devices with and/or output fiber DESCRIPTION: Frequency conversion preserves the quantum states of the signals, i.e. the so-calledquantum conversion(QFC), has found numerous due to its ability to manipulate coherent or state light.

For example, optical communications applications, single-photon quantum communications and information processing for provably data links, can benefit operation in both the visible/near- IR (400800 nm) and the telecommunications C-band nm). Visible and near-IR enable coupling to atomic / quantum dots (e.g. for memory) and detection via fast, room-temperature single-photon detectors; unfortunately, visible/near-IR photons be transmitted over long through single-mode fiber.

photons can be transmitted over distances with extremely low using the existing single-mode telecommunications grid, but can be neither to atomic systems nor easily In principle, QFC provides the ideal coherent transfer between photons (for photon storage, and detection) and telecommunications (for long-haul transmission fiber).

Perfecting this could bridge the distance gap limits the state-of-the-art in provably communications, thus opening the for a revolutionary capability for the DoD. far, QFC has been demonstrated in nonlinear optical media, as crystals, waveguides, microresonators, and fibers. In such systems, matching (QPM) has been an technology to allow efficient interactions to be designed over a wavelength span.

In nonlinear or waveguides, QPM is usually achieved via poling, whereas in nonlinear it can be realized utilizing the modal of the cavity modes. While applications of QPM have become others are emerging that more stringent requirements on fabrication and processing. For example, QFC may to be important for a host of quantum processing applications [1].

For such applications it would be to obtain a narrow phase peak, enabling a potential interface to quantum memory, for On the other hand, a broad matching bandwidth is useful up-converting a high-rate single-photon since it allows the channel to be to multiple detectors by exploiting pumps [2].

In addition to higher speed performance, a system allows high Si avalanche photodiode (APD) counters to be used at a wider of wavelengths, including the telecom where single-photon counters to have poor efficiency, the reach of quantum communications. up- conversion with a tunable followed by Si APDs can also be to build an extremely sensitive [3].

In such a case a band single phase peak is highly desirable a narrow band leads to resolution while a single reduces unwanted cross Quantum applications are in general sensitive to very small single photon) light levels from scattering such as Raman scattering

Moreover, quantum systems are sensitive to loss but most based frequency converters significant (3dB) loss when coupled to standard fibers. In addition to quantum classical applications in instrumentation are emerging such as measuring the of attosecond optical pulses Such applications can benefit waveguides that support polarizations and Type-II nonlinear

Type-II phase matching can be employed for pre- screening prior to poling to improve and uniformity [6]. These applications demand a new generation of waveguides with different and stringent performance metrics. it is of great practical importance these new waveguides can be made high yield, so the cost is not a factor.

Innovative solutions are to the problem of robust quantum conversion. Successful solutions simultaneously address all of the following technological challenges. (1) Low loss.

Nonlinear waveguides are limited by loss (from single-mode for the C-Band signal, to single-mode or free space for the visible insertion loss (to and from the itself) and transmission loss unit length) through the conversion medium; the net loss all sources limits device and it is this net loss that be compared to program milestones. (2) to tailor the phase-matching bandwidths as above. (3) Wavelength selectability. A successful solution should the flexibility to couple any wavelength in the to any wavelength in the C-band.

Note this flexibility need not be in time, but should instead a flexibility in the fabrication process allows any one device to be tailored for any two wavelengths. For high-energy photons 400-nm, multiple stage conversion may be required. (4) Efficiency. The nonlinearity should be sufficiently to provide near 100%-efficient (entanglement-preserving) frequency conversion. (5) and portability.

The ultimate goal of SBIR is to develop a packaged, portable, room-temperature technology can be inserted into an existing PHASE I: Develop a detailed model for the performance of a quantum conversion technology which all of the above requirements.

Perform a simulation and preliminary experimental of end- to-end device and predict the technologys loss, speed, wavelength flexibility, and robustness under a variety of conditions and for the target wavelengths nm and 15301565 nm). A plan for end-to-end losses from all to1.5 dB should be identified. The of Raman photons shall be and methods to achieve low noise be identified.

Based on the simulation each team should quantitative predictions about II and PHASE III device performance in of the five categories listed Using these predictions, appropriate PHASE II technical on a six-month (all milestones include a quantitative target) basis. PHASE II: Construct devices whose end-to-end effectively demonstrates the contractor’s approach.

Using these test all PHASE I predictions for performance. In particular, singly phase matching bandwidths nm must be demonstrated. Losses and effects must be minimized the devices suitable for quantum possibly those in a cascaded Low end-to-end losses (1.5 dB) the nonlinear material must be Methods to maintain acceptable must also be developed.

characterizing the prototype devices, refine and extend the PHASE I Finalize a design for a production capable of delivering tailored as final products, and use the refined to predict the performance of the second-generation III) devices.

PHASE II will include device operating in multiple operational (e.g. at different source and wavelengths), intermediate reports progress towards fulfilling the technical milestones, and a final summarizing all simulations, models, designs, quantitative predictions for III device performance, and proposed milestones for PHASE III. III: Secure optical are critical to both the DoD mission and to commercial systems.

DARPA is funding a major effort to macroscopic quantum communications capable of combining quantum with classical telecommunications and distances (The QUINESS Deployment of this technology require exactly the type of frequency conversion devices in this SBIR.

More any sensing or communications system requires detection of ultra-low of telecommunications-band radiation will from a frequency conversion that enables use of superior single-photon detectors. The new breed of frequency conversion is foreseen to be in a variety applications including photon detection for quantum or lidar, and classical measurements as low photon spectroscopy or highly laser pulse jitter
