Abstract

Parametric downconversion (PDC) allows the generation of highly coherent, spectrally pure single photons for quantum photonics. In a typical heralded PDC source, the signal photon emerges in a spectrally mixed state due to strong (anti)correlation in the joint spectrum of PDC photon pairs.
