Paper Abstract

Quantum memory is regarded as one of the essential components in the fields of quantum computing and quantum communication. Warm atomic vapor cells for quantum memory, as originally described in DLCZ (for Duan, Lukin, Cirac, and Zoller) protocol, are appealing due to the perceived reduction in experimental complexity and commercial availability. However, published studies on quantum memory using warm vapor cells were performed under widely dissimilar experimental conditions and reported ambiguous results. In order for the memory to exhibit non-classical behavior to a high degree of certainty, the cross-correlation value between the Stokes and anti-Stokes photons needs to be greater than two. In this work we demonstrate quantum memory with cross-correlation value between the Stokes and anti-Stokes photons greater than two lasting for 4 μs using warm Rb vapor with buffer gas for nearly co-propagating write and read beams.
