Stimulated emission tomography is a powerful and successful technique to both improve the resolution and experimentally simplify the task of determining the modal properties of biphotons. In the present manuscript we provide a theoretical description of SET valid for any quadratic coupling regime between a non-linear medium and pump fields generating photons by pairs. We use our results to obtain not only information about the associated modal function modulus but also its phase, for any mode…

Stimulated emission tomography: beyond polarization.
The ability of stimulated emission tomography to characterize a hyperentangled state generated by spontaneous parametric downconversion in a cw-pumped source is extended beyond the polarization degree of freedom.
Phase-sensitive tomography of the joint spectral amplitude of photon pair sources.
A novel measurement technique to perform full phase-sensitive tomography on the joint spectrum of photon pair sources, using stimulated four-wave mixing and phase- sensitive amplification, which enables more complete characterization of photons pair sources based on nonlinear photonics.
Measuring the Joint Spectral Mode of Photon Pairs Using Intensity Interferometry.
The ability to manipulate and measure the time-frequency structure of quantum light is useful for information processing and metrology. Measuring this structure is also important when developing
