Abstract

Entangled photon pair sources are essential for applications such as quantum communication and metrology. Here we present a compact energy–time entangled photon pair source at telecom wavelengths realized through cascaded second harmonic generation and spontaneous parametric down conversion in a single periodically poled lithium niobate waveguide. We introduce and characterize methods to diminish the effects of Raman scattering, the principal being quasi-CW pumping. The quality of energy–time entanglement produced by the compact source is analyzed using two-photon interference and Franson interference, and visibilities as high as $93.9\% \pm 0.4\%$ and $90.5\% \pm 0.6\%$ are achieved, respectively.
