  journal={arXiv: Optics},
Spontaneous Parametric Down Conversion(SPDC) is one of the most celebrated and widely used processes for the generation of entangled photon pair in the arena of the Quantum Entanglement. In this article we study both collinear and non collinear phase matching of Spontaneous Parametric Down Conversion (SPDC) process by using wave optics and present a theory that incorporate several different aspects of down conversion. Our theory also incorporate several experimentally relevant parameters which…

Spontaneous Parametric Down-Conversion and Quantum Entanglement
Quantum entanglement has been a topic of much research in modern physics, and an application in quantum computing is envisioned. This thesis address the use of polarization entangled photon pairs
Coherence Properties of the Entangled Two-Photon Field Produced by Parametric Down-Conversion
Parametric down-conversion is a second-order nonlinear optical process in which a pump photon breaks up into two separate photons known as the signal photon and the idler photon. The constraints of

The Quantum Theory of Optical Coherence
The concept of coherence that was conventionally used in optics is found to be inadequate to the needs of recently opened areas of experiment. To provide a fuller discussion of coherence, a

(b) Write out the equations for the time dependence of ρ11, ρ22, ρ12 and ρ21 assuming that a light field interaction V = -μ12Ee iωt + c.c. couples only levels |1> and |2>, and that the excited levels
Nonlinear optics.
In this method, non-linear susceptibility tensors are introduced which relate the induced dipole moment to a power series expansion in field strengths and the various experimental observations are described and interpreted in terms of this formalism.
