Heralded single photons (HSPs) generated by spontaneous parametric down-conversion (SPDC) are useful resource to achieve various photonic quantum information processing. Given a large-scale experiment which needs multiple HSPs, increasing the generation rate with suppressing higher-order pair creation is desirable. One of the promising ways is to use a pump laser with a GHz-order repetition rate. In such a high repetition rate regime, however, single-photon detectors can only partially identify…

High visibility Hong-Ou-Mandel interference via a time-resolved coincidence measurement.

It is argued that the method for determining the HOM visibility used in the previous cw experiments tends to suffer from distortion arising from biased contribution of the background noises, and a new method with unbiased treatment of the cw backgrounds is presented.

Ultra-high-rate nonclassical light source with 50 GHz-repetition-rate mode-locked pump pulses and multiplexed single-photon detectors.

A novel ultra-high-rate nonclassical light source realized by developing 50 GHz-repetition-rate mode-locked pump pulses and multiplexed superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors that could be a promising tool to explore various large-scale quantum-photonic experiments with low success probability and heavy attenuation.

Bright source of spectrally uncorrelated polarization-entangled photons with nearly single-mode emission.

High-performance source of spectrally pure, polarization entangled photon pairs based on hybrid integrated-bulk optics.

This work presents a polarization-entangled pair source based on a hybrid approach of waveguiding and bulk optics, addressing every metric simultaneously, and shows 96 % fidelity to the singlet state, 82 % Hong-Ou-Mandel interference visibility, 43 % average Klyshko efficiency, and a high brightness.

Entanglement swapping between independent and asynchronous integrated photon-pair sources

Integrated photonics represents a technology that could greatly improve quantum communication networks in terms of cost, size, scaling, and robustness. A key benchmark for this is to demonstrate

Conditional preparation of single photons using parametric downconversion: a recipe for purity

In an experiment reported recently (Mosley et al 2008 Phys. Rev. Lett. 100 133601), we demonstrated that, through group velocity matched parametric downconversion, heralded single photons can be

A degenerate telecommunication wavelength entangled-photon source from an ultrafast pulsed laser pumped spontaneous parametric down-conversion (SPDC), which shows simultaneously 97% heralding efficiency and 96% indistinguishability between independent single photons without narrow-band filtering is designed and realized.

Heralded generation of ultrafast single photons in pure quantum States.

It is shown that, through controlling the modal structure of the photon pair emission, one can generate pairs in factorable states and thence eliminate the need for spectral filters in multiple-source interference schemes.
