Polarization entanglement of photons provides a superior enviromnent to demonstrate quantum info-communication protocols. Thus far, several methods [1,2] using parametric down-conversion process have been realized to generate polarization-entangled photon pairs. In this report, we propose a novel method to generate polarization entanglement from spatially correlated photon pairs and demonstrate its experimental verification.
