Reinforcement Learning for Branch-and-Bound Optimisation using Retrospective Trajectories

1 code implementation28 May 2022 Christopher W. F. Parsonson, Alexandre Laterre, Thomas D. Barrett

By retrospectively deconstructing the search tree into multiple paths each contained within a sub-tree, we enable the agent to learn from shorter trajectories with more predictable next states.

Pushing Purcell-enhancement beyond its limits

1 code implementation20 Mar 2019 Thomas D. Barrett, Thomas H. Doherty, Axel Kuhn

It is found that birefringence can mitigate the tradeoff between stronger emitter-cavity coupling and efficient photon extraction.

Polarisation oscillations in birefringent emitter-cavity systems

1 code implementation19 Jul 2018 Thomas D. Barrett, Oliver Barter, Dustin Stuart, Ben Yuen, Axel Kuhn

We present the effects of resonator birefringence on the cavity-enhanced interfacing of quantum states of light and matter, including the first observation of single photons with a time-dependent polarisation state that evolves within their coherence time.

Nonlinear Zeeman Effects in the Cavity-Enhanced Emission of Polarised Photons

1 code implementation27 Apr 2018 Thomas D. Barrett, Dustin Stuart, Oliver Barter, Axel Kuhn

We theoretically and experimentally investigate nonlinear Zeeman effects within a polarised single-photon source that uses a single 87Rb atom strongly coupled to a high finesse optical cavity.
