Allan M. Migdall has proved to be one person who is most fascinated with quantum optics. Following his employment era in Science and Technology National Institute dating back to the year 1984, he has been one very active man in workshops, researches, seminars as well as other activities that take focus on certain efforts involving quantum and classical metrology, Raman scattering, bi-photon light, microstructure fibres and enlargements that are multi particle and optics that are non-linear.
One of the notable research projects that he has been greatly involved in is the Correlated Radiometry of Photon and the Information Technology relating to Quantum. Concisely, this pertains to devices and methods developed in order to strengthen techniques of radiometric and information technology of quantum. It involves the new origins from engineering one photon state refuse, to develop detectors for metrology applications and quantum information.
The latest three publications by Allan M. Migdall were supported fully by the Science and Technology National Institute. The initial Single Photon and Detectors Sources, this is just a manuscript that reviews the recent state of the source and detector of the single photon technologies that operate at wavelengths state from 10 ultraviolet transforming to infrared. Application of the two technologies has been discussed in this manuscript. They are considered to be behind the development of sources and detectors of single photon.
He has the manuscript that introduces the special issue of the aforementioned technologies, which is his second recent publication. This publication is related to one of the international conferences about the technologies of single photon that were conducted by his Institute in 2009. This project meets twice each year at the Institute of National Metrology following the inception meeting in the year 2003 in Gaithersburg at NIST. The workshop seeks to develop and progress the technologies of Single Photon.
However, in his most recent publication, Allan demonstrates the source of a single photon heralded by low level background photons that are not wanted in order to manipulate a shutter contained in the channel that is heralded.
Until now, Allan M. Migdall is an associate of NIST working on researches and projects that would see a breakthrough in quantum topics.
