(University of Calgary)
The ``holy grail'' of the quantum optical memory research is a system that would allow high fidelity storage and retrieval of an arbitrary optical state. We present a functioning testbed for such a system, which brings together the preparation of the quantum state, the memory cell, and full characterization of both the input and the retrieved state in a single apparatus. As demonstration of its capabilities, we report high-fidelity storage and retrieval of the squeezed vacuum state using electromagnetically-induced transparency in atomic rubidium vapor.
