Optical Switches and Memories Using the Zeno Effect and Two-Photon Absorption
Dr. Bryan C. Jacobs
John Hopkins University
The quantum Zeno effect can be used to implement quantum logic operations using single photons. It is shown here that similar effects can occur in a resonant system subject to nonlinear dissipation, and that these effects can be used to implement classical logic and memory devices. Current progress toward the realization of these types of devices will be discussed.
