Generating large topological charge Laguerre–Gaussian beam based on 4K phase-only spatial light modulator
Ruijian Li, Yuan Ren, Tong Liu, Chen Wang, Zhengliang Liu, Jie Zhao, Rusheng Sun, and Ziyang Wang
The resolution of the spatial light modulator (SLM) screen and the encoding algorithm of the computer-generated hologram are the primary limiting factors in the generation of large topological charge vortex beams. This paper attempts to solve these problems by improving both the hardware and the algorithm. Theoretically, to overcome the limitations of beam waist radius, the amplitude profile function of large topological charge Laguerre–Gaussian (LG) beam is properly improved. Then, an experimental system employing a 4K phase-only SLM is set up, and the LG beams with topological charge up to 1200 are successfully generated. Furthermore, we discuss the effect of different beam waist radii on the generation of LG beams. Additionally, the function of the LG beam is further improved to generate an LG beam with a topological charge as high as 1400. Our results set a new benchmark for generating large topological charge vortex beams, which can be widely used in precise measurement, sensing, and communication.

End-to-end optimization of a diffractive optical element and aberration correction for integral imaging
Xiangyu Pei, Xunbo Yu, Xin Gao, Xinhui Xie, Yuedi Wang, Xinzhu Sang, and Binbin Yan
In the integral imaging light field display, the introduction of a diffractive optical element (DOE) can solve the problem of limited depth of field of the traditional lens. However, the strong aberration of the DOE significantly reduces the final display quality. Thus, herein, an end-to-end joint optimization method for optimizing DOE and aberration correction is proposed. The DOE model is established using thickness as the variable, and a deep learning network is built to preprocess the composite image loaded on the display panel. The simulation results show that the peak signal to noise ratio value of the optimized image increases by 8 dB, which confirms that the end-to-end joint optimization method can effectively reduce the aberration problem.

Phase modulation polarization encoding module applied to one-to-many QKD network based on wavelength division multiplexing
Yi Zhang, Xiaojuan Qin, Jindong Wang, Yafei Yu, Zhengjun Wei, and Zhiming Zhang
The quantum key distribution (QKD) network is a promising solution for secure communications. In this paper, we proposed a polarization-independent phase-modulated polarization encoding module, and it can be combined with a dense wavelength division multiplexer (DWDM) to achieve multi-user QKD. We experimentally test the encoding module with a repetition rate of 62.5 MHz, and its average quantum bit error rate (QBER) is as low as 0.4%. Finally, we implement a principle verification test for simultaneous QKD for 1 to 2 users in 100 min, and the average QBER of two users under the transmission distance of 1 km and 5 km is kept below 0.8%. Due to the use of polarization encoding, the module can also realize scalable network architecture in free-space QKD systems in the future.

Fabrication, testing, and assembly of high-finesse optical fiber microcavity for molecule cavity QED experiment
Yuhao Pan, Li Li, Xiaolong Zhou, Dongyu Huang, Zemin Shen, Jian Wang, Chuanfeng Li, and Guangcan Guo
The ultracold molecule is a promising candidate for versatile quantum tasks due to its long-range interaction and rich internal rovibrational states. With the help of the cavity quantum electrodynamics (QED) effects, an optical cavity can be employed to increase the efficiency of the formation of the photoassociated molecules and offers a non-demolition detection of the internal states of molecules. Here, we demonstrate the production of the high-finesse optical fiber microcavity for the Rb2 molecule cavity QED experiment, which includes the fabrication of fiber-based cavity mirrors, testing, and the assembly of ultra-high vacuum-compatible optical fiber microcavity. The optical fiber microcavity offers high cooperativity between cavity mode and ultracold molecule and paves the way for the study of molecule cavity QED experimental research.
