  2. We examine the sensitivity of Λ-type optical quantum memories to experimental fluctuations using a variance-based analysis. The results agree with physical interpretations of quantum memory protocols, and are important for practical implementations.

  3. We present our experimental results on generating photon pairs entangled in a transverse-mode Bell state in few-mode optical fiber by controlling the transverse mode of the pump to selectively excite spontaneous four-wave mixing processes.

  4. We exploit the large modal space available in ring-core fibers supporting orbital angular momentum modes to demonstrate a versatile means to control the shape of photon-pair joint-spectral densities generated by spontaneous four-wave mixing.

  5. Quantum memories are of critical importance to the scalability of quantum information processing and quantum technologies in communication, measurement, and computation. Here we present numerical simulation of the storage of ultra-broadband photons in hot atomic barium vapor, which allows for quantum memory operation at telecom wavelengths. We numerically calculate the optimal control field profiles for the storage process both through direct Nedler-Mead simplex search and by singular value decomposition of the storage kernel, where the latter guarantees optimality. We provide a physical interpretation of our numerical results related in part to recent work on Autler-Townes-Splitting (ATS) based quantum memory, and show saturation of the protocol-independent bound on storage efficiency imposed by the optical depth for pulses of duration 200 fs to 17.5 ps. In conclusion we provide an outlook for implementing these results experimentally.
