Comparison of multi-cavity arrays for on-chip WDM applications

Erdinç, Havva
Researches about the interaction of single atoms with electromagnetic field create the foundation of cavity quantum electrodynamics (CQED) technology. Microlasers, photon bandgap structures and quantum dot structures in cavities are the initial examples of Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics. This thesis is focused on the comparison of multi-cavity arrays for on-chip wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) applications in the weak coupling regime. Firstly, single QD embedded cavity (cavity QD EIT) and cavity-cavity array (classical EIT) systems are compared in the weak coupling regime in terms of transmission, group delay, quality factor, and full width half maximum (FWHM) characteristics. Identical transmission characteristic is observed for both systems whereas group delay values of classical EIT is two times higher than the cavity-QD EIT surprisingly. Then, single QD embedded cavity-cavity array and triple cavity array systems are compared in the weak coupling regime. These structures are simulated with several different variables many times and results are compared with the calculations for both systems. Results show that it is possible to get different WDM characteristic with different configurations. Taking advantage of the unique capabilities of quantum technologies, on-chip WDM applications can create new opportunities for the latest developments in designing communication infrastructure.


Quantum Information Approach to Correlations in Many-body Systems
Aksak, Çağan; Turgut, Sadi; Department of Physics (2022-9-21)
Quantum correlations are crucial features in both quantum information theory and many-body physics. Characterization and quantification of quantum correlations have delivered a rich body of work and helped to understand some quantum phenomena. Entanglement is a unique quantum correlation for which it is a resource in many quantum information tasks. Developed for quantification of entanglement, entanglement witness formalism is a remarkable tool in the quantum information toolkit. It can be deployed beyond t...
Thermal characterisation of quantum cascade lasers with Fabry Perot modes
Gundogdu, Sinan; Pisheh, Hadi Sedaghat; Demir, Abdullah; Guenoven, Mete; AYDINLI, ATİLLA; Sirtori, Carlo (2018-04-26)
Quantum cascade lasers are coherent light sources that rely on intrersubband transition in periodic semiconductor quantum well structures. They operate at frequencies from mid-infrared to terahertz. In cases of long wavelength and typical low thermal conductivity of the active region, temperature rise in the active region during operation is a major concern. Thermal conductivity of QCL epi-layers differ significantly from the values of bulk semiconductors and measurement of the thermal conductivity of epi-l...
Quantum systems and representation theorem
Dosi, Anar (2013-09-01)
In this paper we investigate quantum systems which are locally convex versions of abstract operator systems. Our approach is based on the duality theory for unital quantum cones. We prove the unital bipolar theorem and provide a representation theorem for a quantum system being represented as a quantum -system.
Solid and liquid properties of Pd-Ni metal alloys using quantum Sutton-Chen many-body potential
Kart, SO; Uludogan, M; Cagin, T; Tomak, Mehmet (2003-09-12)
The performance of the quantum Sutton-Chen many body potential on the solid and liquid properties of Pd-Ni fcc transition metal alloys is investigated by molecular dynamics simulations. Elastic constants, phonon dispersion relations and diffusion coefficients are studied. The melting temperatures of Pd-Ni alloys are predicted. The transferability of the potential is also tested by simulating the liquid state. Comparison of the molecular dynamics results with available experimental data shows that the quantu...
Simulation of crystallization and glass formation processes for binary Pd-Ag metal alloys
Kart, HH; Uludogan, M; Cagin, T; Tomak, Mehmet (2003-09-12)
Glass formation and crystallization process of Pd-Ag metallic alloys are investigated by means of molecular dynamics simulation. This simulation uses the quantum Sutton-Chen (Q-SC) potential to study structural and transport properties of Pd-Ag alloys. Cooling rates and concentration effects on the glass formation and crystallization of binary alloys considered in this work are investigated. Pd-Ag alloys show the glass structure at fast cooling rates while it crystallizes at slow cooling rates. Increment of...
