Temporal coherence and indistinguishability in two-photon interference effects


We show that temporal two-photon interference effects involving the signal and idler photons created by parametric down-conversion can be fully characterized in terms of the variations of two length parameters— called the biphoton path-length difference and the biphoton path-asymmetry-length difference—which we construct using the six different length… (More)
