Abstract

Randomly poled nonlinear crystals are shown to be able to emit intense ultra-broadband photon-pair fields with properties comparable to those coming from chirped periodically-poled crystals. Their intensities scale linearly with the number of domains. Also photon pairs extending over intervals with durations comparable to one optical cycle can be generated in these crystals.

Figures (4)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Photon-pair generation rate N as a function of the number NL of domains for an ensemble of random crystals with standard deviation σ equal to 0 m (solid line), 0.5 × 10−6 m (solid line with ▵), and 2 × 10−6 m (solid line with ♦); N = ∫sin(ωs,ωi).
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 a) Signal-field spectral width ΔSs (FWHM) as a function of chirping parameter ζ, b) transformation curve between the standard deviation σ and chirping parameter ζ assuming equal spectral widths ΔSs, and c) photon-pair generation rate N for chirped (solid curve with ○) and random (solid curve) crystals and their ratio rN (rN = N/N chirp, dashed curve) as functions of chirping parameter ζ; NL = 2000.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 Signal-field spectrum Ss for a) one realization of the random crystal and b) CPPC (solid curve with ▵) and mean value for an ensemble of random crystals (solid curve with ♦). Spectra Ss are given as Ss = ħωsin(ωs,ωi) and are normalized such that one photon is emitted; σ = 2.3 × 10−6 m, ζ = 1 × 106 m−2, NL = 2000.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 a) Coincidence-count rate Rn and b) sum-frequency field intensity Isum as they depend on relative time delay τ for one realization of the random crystal (solid curve), chirped crystal (solid curve with ▵) and an ensemble of random crystals (solid curve with ♦). In b), ideal phase compensation is assumed and curves are normalized such that d τ I sum ( τ ) = 1; values of parameters are the same as in Fig. 3.
