Quantum state tomography of slow and stored light

4 April 2013


Quantum information can be transferred from a beam of light to a cloud of atoms and controllably released at a later time. These quantum memory devices are fundamental to applications in quantum information science, quantum computing, and quantum communication. We propose a technique for measuring the quantum state of light that has been stored and released from a quantum memory system. This technique does not require careful mode matching can in fact be used to optimize the measured field mode without a priori knowledge of the stored light.
