Experimental characterization of the photon statistics of four-wave mixing photon source

Abstract

We discuss the statistics of Poissonian and thermal sources, and verify that as an approximation to a single-photon source, both Poissonian and thermal sources can be used, when the average number of photons per pulse is of the order of 0.1. An experimental characterization of the photon statistics of a single-photon source obtained from the four-wave… (More)
