Abstract

We conceived an optical generator leading to the production of 3×1013 triple photons per pulse with a full-width duration of 88ps at 1e2, by using a third-order optical parametric interaction phase-matched in a KTP crystal and pumped at 532nm. The triple photon generation is stimulated by two photons orthogonally polarized emitted by a homemade optical parametric oscillator emitting at 1665nm. The energy generated at 1474nm is well modelized by an analytical model based on Jacobi elliptic functions. These results open the way to new quantum measurement relative to Greenberger–Horne–Zeilinger state of light.
