Photon correlations of a sub-threshold optical parametric oscillator.

Abstract

A microscopic multimode theory of collinear type-I spontaneous parametric downconversion in a cavity is presented. Single-mode and multimode correlation functions have been derived using fully quantized atom and electromagnetic field variables. From a first principles calculation the FWHM of the single-mode correlation function and the cavity enhancement… (More)
