Abstract

We generate ultrabroadband biphotons via the process of spontaneous parametric down-conversion in a quasi-phase-matched nonlinear grating that has a linearly chirped poling period. Using these biphotons in conjunction with superconducting single-photon detectors (SSPDs), we measure the narrowest Hong-Ou-Mandel dip to date in a two-photon interferometer, having a full width at half maximum (FWHM) of ≈ 5.7 fsec. This FWHM corresponds to a quantum optical coherence tomography (QOCT) axial resolution of 0.85 µm. Our results indicate that a high flux of nonoverlapping biphotons may be generated, as required in many applications of nonclassical light.

(Color online). Normalized Hong-Ou-Mandel (HOM) coincidence interferograms (dips) that were obtained using a pair of semiconductor single-photon avalanche photo-diodes (APDs) (squares), and using a pair of superconducting single-photon detectors (SSPDs) (circles). The symbols represent the measured data points and the curves are Gaussian fits to the data. The FWHM of the measured dips are 6.2±0.1, and 5.7±0.2 fsec for the experiments conducted using APDs and SSPDs, respectively. These observed ultra narrow dips translate to ultra-high axial QOCT resolution of 0.93 and 0.85 µm, respectively.
