Recent developments in quantum photonics have initiated the process of bringing photonic-quantum-based systems out-of-the-lab and into real-world applications. As an example, devices to enable the exchange of a cryptographic key secured by the laws of quantum mechanics are already commercially available. In order to further boost this process, the next step… (More)
Nonlinear optical processes are one of the most important tools in modern optics with a broad spectrum of applications in, for example, frequency conversion, spectroscopy, signal processing and quantum optics. For practical and ultimately widespread implementation, on-chip devices compatible with electronic integrated circuit technology offer great… (More)
We demonstrate orthogonally polarized photon pair generation via spontaneous non-degenerate four-wave-mixing (FWM) of orthogonally polarized pumps in a CMOS compatible micro-ring resonator by fully suppressing stimulated FWM. Photon coincidences and optical parametric oscillation are measured.
