Allan M. Migdall has done immense amount of research in the studies of Quantum Optics and have led to the development of many applications from it for its better usage and understanding in our day to day life. He is employed with National Institute of Science and Technology since 1984 and has been part of many workshops, researches and seminars in his subject of Quantum Optics including correlated two-photon light, microstructure fibers, non-linear optics, classical and quantum metrology, multi-particle enlargement, parametric down conversion and Raman scattering.
Throughout his career, Allan M. Migdall has been involved with many different projects related to the subject of Quantum Optics of which the most significant and notable are Quantum Information Technology and Correlated Photon Radiometry. It deals with different kinds of methodologies, devices and applications developed and researched on for strengthening the base of radiometric techniques as well as Quantum information technology. This has led to developing detectors through new sources by engineering single photon state emission for metrology applications and quantum information.
He has written a lot about the subject of Quantum Optics and his latest publications were also acknowledged, approved and supported by National Institute of Science and Technology. First of his latest three latest publications namely Single Photon Sources and Detectors talks about the recent status of single photon detector technologies and single photon source which operates at the wavelength between ten ultraviolet to infrared. Applications of the quantum optics technologies are discussed in the above mentioned manuscript by Allan M. Migdall.
Second latest publication by him named Introduction to Special Issue on Single Photon Technologies and is related to details and discussions based on International Conference on single photon technologies which was held in November 2009 and was conducted by National Institute of Science and Technology Boulder. First meeting of such kind took place in Gaithersburg in 2003 at National Institute of Science and Technology and since then this project convenes two times a year at National Metrology Institute. These workshops have only and only aim and that is the development as well as progress of single photon technologies.
Last of his latest publication is titled Experiment Realization of a Low Noise Heralded Single Photon Source which focuses on heralded single photon source with negligible amount of residual background photons in the output channel which is made possible by the use of herald photon. Allan M. Migdall is still associated with National Institute of Science and Technology and working on wide array of projects, researches and developments taking place in the world of quantum information technologies and quantum optics.
