How to count one photon and get a(n average) result of 1000...
Speaker(s): Aephraim Steinberg
Abstract: I will present our recent experimental work using electromagnetically induced transparency in laser-cooled atoms to measure the nonlinear phase shift created by a single post-selected photon, and its enhancement through "weak-value amplification." Put simply, due to the striking effects of "post-sel... read more

The arrow of time for continuous quantum measurements
Speaker(s): Andrew Jordan
Abstract: The question of the time reversibility of quantum mechanics with measurements is one that has been debated for some time. In this talk, I will present new work exploring our ability to distinguish the forward from the time-reverse measurement records of continuous quantum measurements. The question ... read more

PIRSA:16060038  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Observation of Aharonov-Bohm effect with quantum tunneling
Speaker(s): Yutaka Shikano
Abstract: Quantum tunneling is one such phenomenon that is essential for a number of devices that are now taken for granted. However, our understanding of quantum tunneling dynamics is far from complete, and there are still a number of theoretical and experimental challenges. The dynamics of the quantum tunne... read more

PIRSA:16060039  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Confined contextuality: How specific counterfactual paradoxes in pre- and post-selected Kochen-Specker sets give rise to experimentally observable consequences.
Speaker(s): Mordecai Waegell
Abstract: The Kochen-Specker (KS) theorem can gives rise to logical paradoxes under pre- and post-selection in which the contextual behavior is confined to specific observables of a system. Weak measurements allow direct experimental observation of the nonclassical behavior of these specific observables. This... read more

PIRSA:16060040  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Weak and continuous measurements in superconducting circuits
Speaker(s): Justin Dressel
Abstract: Superconducting circuit technology has rapidly developed over the past several years to become a leading contender for realizing a scalable quantum computer. Modern circuit designs are based on the transmon qubit, which coherently superposes macroscopic charge oscillations. Measurements of a transmo... read more
