Abstract

We propose a scheme to efficiently generate time-frequency and polarization-entangled photon pairs with cold atomic ensembles via spontaneous four-wave mixing through combining the photon pairs from two symmetrical spatial modes by polarization beam splitters. With a two-dimensional magneto-optical trap, polarization-entangled photon pairs with controllable temporal length (>100ns) can be generated at the rate of about 105 per second after taking into account all losses. Therefore, it is a feasible photon source for scalable linear optical quantum computation and long-distance quantum communication.

(a) Experimental setup. PBS: polarization beam splitter; M: mirror; QWP: quarter wave plate; PM: phase modulator. (b) Energy level configuration. ωp: pump laser; ωc: coupling laser; ωs: Stokes field; ωas: anti-Stokes field; Δp: pump laser detuning. As for Rb85, the energy levels |1|4 should be |5S1/2,F=2, |5S1/2,F=3, |5P1/2,F=3, |5P3/2,F=3, respectively.

(a) Coincidence counts per second for the proposed scheme; generation rate and coincidence time are: 105s1 and 400 ns with (OD)ρ=40, Ωc=4γ13 (solid curve); 0.5×105s1 and 200 ns with (OD) ρ=20, Ωc=4γ13 (dotted curve), 0.5×105s1 and 360 ns with (OD) ρ=20, Ωc=3γ13 (dashed curve). Other parameters: Ωp=γ13, γ13=2π×3MHz, Δp=7.5γ13, L=1.5cm, θ=±2°, η0.1. (b) Coincidence counts per second for the right-angle FWM scheme (the same parameters are used as above; only Δp=1000γ13 is different). With (OD) ρ=40 (solid curve) and (OD) ρ=20 (dashed line), only several pairs can be generated per second.
