[en] We have performed the femtosecond two-pulse self-diffracted four-wave mixing (FWM) experiments for a 500 μm undoped GaAs and a 350 μm undoped InP to have further insight into the FWM singnals in thick semiconductors at far below the band gap. We have observed the third- and fifth-order FWM signals for both samples even in the detuning range of 100-170 meV below the band gap. We have also observed that the pronounced blue-shifts of the spectrally resolved (SR) FWM signals at far below the bands gap, exhibiting that these behaviors do not depend on the material properties and temperature. We have proposed that the FWM signals in thick semiconductors at far below the band gap are contributed by the instantaneously created virtual states by temporal overlap of the excitation laser pulses.
[en] In this paper, we demonstrate that the intensity difference squeezing (IDS) of parametric amplified four-wave mixing (PA-FWM) can be modulated by the phase-sensitive dressed effect in a hot rubidium (Rb) atomic system. The introduction of phase-sensitive dressed effect can enhance the degree of IDS of PA-FWM to −8.1 dB, as compared to that in the phase-insensitive dressed PA-FWM of −6.6 dB. The phase-sensitive dressing field can not only enhance the degree of IDS of PA-FWM by the dressed effect, but can also be treated as the seed beam of the PA-six wave mixing process. So, double-injected three-mode IDS obviously has a bigger degree of IDS compared with the single-injection case. One advantage of the current scheme for enhancing the generated IDS is that the experimental setup is simple and mechanically stable. These outcomes can be used in the fabrication of quantum devices and the realization of quantum metrology. (letter)

[en] Based on the quantum Liouville formalism, a theory of the two-color, triply resonant four-wave mixing is developed for molecules with isotropically oriented angular momenta. The approach allows to strictly incorporate the relaxation matrices Γ(r) (r = 0, 1, 2) into the third-order susceptibility χ(3) whose expression acquires therewith the form of a scalar product in the line space. Thanks to this representation, isolation of all resonance terms from χ(3) becomes a routine task. Some of these terms correspond to the case when a molecule initially interacts with two pump photons of the same frequency. Such interactions give rise to the grating line-space vectors which have the same (zero) eigenfrequency. Due to this degeneracy, the latter are easily mixed by rotationally inelastic collisions which shows up in a state-resolved coherence transfer. The satellite signals induced thereby provide a great scope to study the state-to-state inelastic rates in situ by purely optical means. If the diagonal form of Γ is assumed, the satellites become forbidden and our results reduce to conventional expressions for the main resonances. Polarization configurations are designed for direct measurements of the population (r = 0), orientation (r = 1), and alignment (r = 2) contributions to χ(3). Finally, depending on the photon-molecule interaction sequence, the resonance terms of χ(3) are shown to be differently affected by velocity averaging, the effect which conspicuously manifests itself when Doppler broadening becomes paramount
[en] We demonstrate experimental observation of vacuum Rabi splitting (VRS) of four-wave mixing and six-wave mixing in a collective five-level atomic-cavity coupling system. We study the control of VRS via changing the dressing effect of the vacuum cavity mode; i.e., the cavity mode dressing effect can selectively split the right or left peak when cavity-atom detuning and atom number N are changed. We further report that the cavity window and two electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) windows induced by the dressing field interfere with each other because of different two-photon conditions they satisfy. Additionally, we investigate the self-dressing field effect on VRS of six-wave mixing (SWM) inside the cavity. Such investigation results can find application in all-optical switches and optical communications. (paper)
[en] We have investigated the temporal and spectral profiles of four-wave mixing (Fm) signals in a 500 μm thick undoped GaAs with detuning from near the excitonic resonance up to 170 MeV below the band gap. The time-integrated (Ti) FWM signals are dominated by exciton states and the dephasing times are larger than the excitation pulse width at small detunings, whereas the instantaneous decay is manifest at large detunings. Furthermore, the central energies of the spectrally resolved (SR) FWM signals with respect to the excitation pulse spectrum far below the band gap are blue-shifted significantly as the time delay moves away from positive to negative. As the detuning increases, the shifts of the central energy and the full width at half maximum (FWHM) of the SR-FWM signals become larger. These phenomena can be explained as due to different group velocities with different frequencies and the instantaneously created virtual states by the two excitation laser pulses.
[en] Loss is a critical roadblock to achieving photonic quantum-enhanced technologies. We explore a modular platform for implementing integrated photonics experiments and consider the effects of loss at different stages of these experiments, including state preparation, manipulation and measurement. We frame our discussion mainly in the context of quantum sensing and focus particularly on the use of loss-tolerant Holland-Burnett states for optical phase estimation. In particular, we discuss spontaneous four-wave mixing in standard birefringent fibre as a source of pure, heralded single photons and present methods of optimizing such sources. We also outline a route to programmable circuits that allows the control of photonic interactions even in the presence of fabrication imperfections and describe a ratiometric characterization method for beam splitters, which allows the characterization of complex circuits without the need for full process tomography. Finally, we present a framework for performing state tomography on heralded states using lossy measurement devices. This is motivated by a calculation of the effects of fabrication imperfections on precision measurement using Holland-Burnett states.
