We demonstrate the direct generation of polarization-entangled photon pairs at room temperature and telecom wavelength in an AlGaAs semiconductor waveguide. The source is based on spontaneous parametric down-conversion with a counterpropagating phase-matching scheme. The quality of the two-photon state is assessed by the reconstruction of the density matrix(More)
The Hong-Ou-Mandel (HOM) experiment was a benchmark in quantum optics, evidencing the non-classical nature of photon pairs, later generalized to quantum systems with either bosonic or fermionic statistics. We show that a simple modification in the well-known and widely used HOM experiment provides the direct measurement of the Wigner function. We apply our(More)
The ability of multi-core processors to increase application performance depends on the use of multiple threads within applications. Symbolic computations, requiring both CPU power and large memory, are well-suited candidates for deriving advantages from multi-core parallel architectures. This is possible only if the specific libraries and tools are(More)
