Two-mode thermal squeezing in a mechanical resonator based on a nonlinear measurement


Motoki Asano and Hiroshi Yamaguchi, NTT Basic Research Laboratories

Multiple mechanical modes in a micro/nano mechanical resonator show a random motion due to thermal fluctuation. Producing a correlation among the modes is applicable for sensing and information processing with squeezing the thermal noise. We demonstrated a novel squeezing scheme based on an optical nonlinear measurement of mechanical oscillators. So far, the noise squeezing has been performed by making a polarization in a pseudo-angular momentum with a sum-frequency pump signal. We clarified that the noise squeezing is enabled by directly

Experimental demonstration of plasmonic quantum walks in the one-dimensional gold-strip waveguide lattice structure


  Shuichiro Inoue, Nihon University

Quantum walks (QWs) simulate quantum mechanical behaviours of particles, which exhibit time evolutions completely different from the classical random walks. QWs offer quantum physical simulations and the novel approach to build quantum computers. Currently on-chip photonic devices have been intensively developed and QWs have been implemented using photonic circuits based on silica waveguide platforms.

We have experimentally demonstrated QWs in
one-dimensional lattice structures based on the long-range surface plasmon
polariton (LR-SPP) waveguide platform. The LR-SPP waveguide allows a
single-polarization mode, and has relatively low optical losses. The

Generation of high-repetition rate sub-cycle mid-infrared pulses applicable to lightwave-driven STM


Yokohama National
University, Jun Takeda

scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) has been realized using
carrier-envelope-phase (CEP)-stable THz pulses, and electron tunneling was
coherently manipulated across a tunnel junction.

Robust control of two-qubit Hamiltonian dynamics


Mio Murao, The University of Tokyo

We showed that it is possible to achieve robust control of Hamiltonian dynamics to implement an arbitrary target quantum gate for two-qubit Hamiltonian systems including an unknown parameter by adding a single-qubit control Hamiltonian.
