Paper Abstract

In this paper we report the first demonstration of “cavity enhanced rephased amplified spontaneous emission”. The rephased amplified spontaneous emission (RASE) protocol provides an all-in-one photon-pair source and quantum memory that has applications as a quantum repeater node. Cavity enhancement of the interaction of the optical mode with the ensemble has the potential to improve the fidelity of the entanglement of the photon pairs. Using heterodyne detection, amplified emission and photon echo induced rephased amplified emission were observed from a Pr3+ doped Y2SiO5 crystal placed in a Fabry Perot cavity with a finesse of 70. Modifications to the experiment to allow non-classical correlations to be observed are discussed.
