Description: Entanglement has a central role in fundamental tests of quantum mechanics as well as in the burgeoning field of quantum information processing. Particularly in the context of quantum networks and communication, a main challenge is the efficient generation of entanglement between stationary (spin) and propagating (photon) quantum bits. Here we report the observation of quantum entanglement between a semiconductor quantum dot spin and the colour of a propagating optical photon. The demonstration of entanglement relies on the use of fast, single-photon detection, which allows us to project the photon into a superposition of red and blue frequency components. Our results extend the previous demonstrations of single-spin/single-photon entanglement in trapped ions, neutral atoms and nitrogen-vacancy centres to the domain of artificial atoms in semiconductor nanostructures that allow for on-chip integration of electronic and photonic elements. As a result of its fast optical transitions and favourable selection rules, the scheme we implement could in principle generate nearly deterministic entangled spin-photon pairs at a rate determined ultimately by the high spontaneous emission rate. Our observation constitutes a first step towards implementation of a quantum network with nodes consisting of semiconductor spin quantum bits.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Notes: 〈/span〉Gao, W B -- Fallahi, P -- Togan, E -- Miguel-Sanchez, J -- Imamoglu, A -- England -- Nature. 2012 Nov 15;491(7424):426-30. doi: 10.1038/nature11573.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Author address: 〈/span〉Institute of Quantum Electronics, ETH Zurich, CH-8093 Zurich, Switzerland.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Record origin:〈/span〉 〈a href="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23151586" target="_blank"〉PubMed〈/a〉

Description: Scalable quantum computing can be achieved only if quantum bits are manipulated in a fault-tolerant fashion. Topological error correction--a method that combines topological quantum computation with quantum error correction--has the highest known tolerable error rate for a local architecture. The technique makes use of cluster states with topological properties and requires only nearest-neighbour interactions. Here we report the experimental demonstration of topological error correction with an eight-photon cluster state. We show that a correlation can be protected against a single error on any quantum bit. Also, when all quantum bits are simultaneously subjected to errors with equal probability, the effective error rate can be significantly reduced. Our work demonstrates the viability of topological error correction for fault-tolerant quantum information processing.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Notes: 〈/span〉Yao, Xing-Can -- Wang, Tian-Xiong -- Chen, Hao-Ze -- Gao, Wei-Bo -- Fowler, Austin G -- Raussendorf, Robert -- Chen, Zeng-Bing -- Liu, Nai-Le -- Lu, Chao-Yang -- Deng, You-Jin -- Chen, Yu-Ao -- Pan, Jian-Wei -- England -- Nature. 2012 Feb 22;482(7386):489-94. doi: 10.1038/nature10770.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Author address: 〈/span〉Shanghai Branch, National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at Microscale and Department of Modern Physics, University of Science and Technology of China, Shanghai 201315, China.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Record origin:〈/span〉 〈a href="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22358838" target="_blank"〉PubMed〈/a〉

Notes: Laser-induced infrared fluorescence was used to measure the collision-induced vibrational energy relaxation in dichloromethane (CH2Cl2). The activation and deactivation of the υ8 and υ3/υ9 vibrational modes was measured after excitation of CH-stretching vibrations near 3000 cm−1. Rate constants for the energy transfer are deduced leading to a simplified model for the vibrational relaxation in CH2Cl2.

Notes: Abstract For a class of time-varying nonlinear systems described by the equation $$\dot x = f(x,t) + g(x,t)u$$ , the precalculating control is not available if the input matrixg(x,t) is not invertible. With Lyapunov's second method, a stabilizing controller which makes the system practically stable is constructed in this paper. It is shown that the implementation of this scheme depends on some so-called posi-invertibility conditions forg(x,t). In case the system is partly stable, the method, named part-calculating control, can simplify the on-line computations. Without the assumption that the nominal system is asymptotically stable, the method is applied to the problems of control for the corresponding uncertain system that satisfies the matching condition. When the matching condition is not satisfied, the mismatching control problem is also studied with Lyapunov's second method.

Description: On-demand, single-photon emitters (SPEs) play a key role across a broad range of quantum technologies. In quantum networks and quantum key distribution protocols, where photons are used as flying qubits, telecom wavelength operation is preferred because of the reduced fiber loss. However, despite the tremendous efforts to develop various triggered SPE platforms, a robust source of triggered SPEs operating at room temperature and the telecom wavelength is still missing. We report a triggered, optically stable, room temperature solid-state SPE operating at telecom wavelengths. The emitters exhibit high photon purity (~5% multiphoton events) and a record-high brightness of ~1.5 MHz. The emission is attributed to localized defects in a gallium nitride (GaN) crystal. The high-performance SPEs embedded in a technologically mature semiconductor are promising for on-chip quantum simulators and practical quantum communication technologies.
