The talk will describe techniques for modulating the amplitude and phase of single photons and biphotons. We also describe a quantum process termed as nonlocal nonlocal modulation. Here, phase modulation of one photon of an entangled pair, as measured by correlation in the frequency domain, may be negated or enhanced by modulation of the second photon. Professor Stephen E. Harris received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1959. In 1963 he became a member of the Stanford faculty where he is now the Kenneth and Barbara Oshman Professor of Engineering with appointments in Electrical Engineering and Applied Physics. Professor Harris has advised about 60 Ph.D. students and is known for contributions to quantum optics, nonlinear optics, and laser science.
