Abstract

Spontaneous parametric upconversion (SPUC) and spontaneous parametric downconversion (SPDC) have been observed in the β-barium borate (BBO) crystal, and their mechanisms are experimentally and theoretically investigated. SPUC, tuned from 530to600nm with a FWHM of about 25nm, can be attributed to the sum frequency between the quantum noise and the fundamental laser pulse in the type II phase matching condition (e+oe). SPDC, tuned from 480to520nm with a FWHM of about 15nm, can be attributed to the difference frequency between the quantum noise and the fundamental laser pulse in the type I phase matching condition (eo+o).

Dependences of the SPUC and the SPDC intensity on the fundamental (a) pulse-width and (b) intensity, and the rotation angle of the β - BBO crystal around the z axis. Here, θ (deg.) corresponds to the angle between the incident ray and the optical axis, and φ (deg.) gives the angle between the pulse polarized orientation and the principal section.
