We theoretically model the counterpropagating entangled states generated in vertically-pumped, lossy, coupled resonator optical waveguides and use the model to investigate the effects of the loss on the propagation of the entangled states for different pump parameters.

Counterpropagating continuous-variable entangled states in lossy coupled-cavity optical waveguides
We present an integrated source of counterpropagating entangled states based on a coupled resonator optical waveguide that is pumped by a classical pulsed source incident from above the waveguide. We
Generation of Counterpropagating Path-Entangled Photon Pairs in a Single Periodic Waveguide.
Using the unique properties of Bloch modes in such periodic structures, it is shown that two counterpropagating phase-matching conditions can be fulfilled simultaneously, allowing for the generation of path-entangled Bell states in a single periodic waveguide.
Continuous-variable entanglement on a chip
The capabilities of continuous variable (CV) quantum technology — homodyne detection and characterization of Einstein–Podolsky–Rosen entangled light — are demonstrated by sending CV light at 860 nm
Efficient parametric generation of counterpropagating two-photon states
Guided-wave parametric downconversion with a transverse pump is a versatile means to generate a wide range of two-photon states. We propose and compare some microcavity-based schemes for the
Generating entangled photons via enhanced spontaneous parametric downconversion in AlGaAs microring resonators.
Spontaneous parametric downconversion (SPDC) can be enhanced in double-channel side-coupled microring resonator structures, generating entangled photons spatially separated in different channels. The
New high-intensity source of polarization-entangled photon pairs.
Type-II noncollinear phase matching in parametric down conversion produces true entanglement: No part of the wave function must be discarded, in contrast to previous schemes.
Experimental demonstration of unconditional entanglement swapping for continuous variables.
The unconditional entanglement swapping for continuous variables is experimentally demonstrated. Two initial entangled states are produced from two nondegenerate optical parametric amplifiers
Entangled photons from on-chip slow light
The present result enables us to realize an on-chip entanglement source with a very small footprint, which is an essential function for quantum information processing based on integrated quantum photonics.
Entangling macroscopic oscillators exploiting radiation pressure.
It is shown that radiation pressure can be profitably used to entangle macroscopic oscillators like movable mirrors, using present technology and a new sufficient criterion for entanglement is proved, which is robust against thermal noise.
Squeezed-state evolution and entanglement in lossy coupled-resonator optical waveguides
We investigate theoretically the temporal evolution of a squeezed state in lossy coupled-cavity systems. We present a general formalism based upon the tight binding approximation and apply this to a
