“Encoding Quantum Information in the Colors and Shapes of Single Photons”
Abstract: Given a single photon, information can be encoded on it using its color (frequency) or temporal shape. Field-orthogonal temporal shapes of photonic quantum states provide a new framework for quantum information science. Four-wave mixing in nonlinear optical media can convert the quantum state in one spectral band of the optical spectrum to another spectral band. By tailoring the nonlinear optical process, one can achieve selectivity for different temporally orthogonal wave packets, creating useful capabilities for a quantum Internet.
