Abstract

We study photon-pair generation in arrays of cubic nonlinear waveguides through spontaneous four-wave mixing. We analyze numerically the quantum statistics of photon pairs at the array output as a function of waveguide dispersion and pump beam power. We show flexible spatial quantum state control such as pump-power-controlled transition between bunching and anti-bunching correlations due to nonlinear self-focusing.

(b) Normalized pump spectrum (green solid line), normalized signal (red dashed line) and idler (blue dotted line) spectral filters. Gray shading marks a part of the pump spectrum contributing to the filtered photon-pair generation.
