Spectral properties of single photons from a single Ca+ ion — •Philipp Müller, Tristan Tentrup, Marc Bienert, Jürgen Eschner, and Giovanna Morigi — Universität des Saarlandes, Experimentalphysik, Campus E 2.6, Saarbrücken

Pure photonic quantum states, such as Fourier-limited single photons, are optimal qubit carriers to attain high bandwidth in quantum communication. They are generated, for example, from a single trapped ion in a Raman-scattering process [1, 2]. The same process allows heralded single-photon absorption [3].

We developed a method, based on resolvent theory and the residue theorem, to calculate the spectro-temporal properties of the Raman-emitted photon for incident light of arbitrary spectrum and for excitation by coherent light or by single photons. We particularly include the branching ratio of the three-level system.

Application to the experimental situation of a trapped single Ca+ ion allows us to control the atom–photon interaction, optimise the photon-generation efficiency, and generate single photons with tailored properties.
