Abstract

Hong-Ou-Mandel (HOM) interference between independent photon sources (HOMI-IPS) is the fundamental block for quantum information processing. All the previous HOMI-IPS experiments were carried out in time-domain, however, the spectral information during the interference was omitted. Here, we investigate the HOMI-IPS in spectral domain using the recently developed fast fiber spectrometer, and demonstrate the spectral distribution during the HOM interference between two heralded single-photon sources, and two thermal sources. This experiment not only can deepen our understanding of HOMI-IPS from the viewpoint of spectral domain, but also presents a tool to test the theoretical predictions of HOMI-IPS using spectrally engineered sources.

The experimental setup. Picosecond laser pulses (76 MHz, 792 nm, temporal duration ~ 2 ps) from a mode-locked Titanium sapphire laser (Mira900, Coherent Inc.) were divided by a polarizing beam splitter (PBS) into two paths, and pumped two 30-mm-long PPKTP crystals with a poling period of 46.1 µm for type-II SPDC. The downconverted signal (horizontal polarization) and idler (vertical polarization) photons with a degenerate wavelength of 1584 nm were divided by two PBSs, and then coupled into single-mode fibers (SMFC). The signal photons were sent to a 50/50 fiber beam splitter (FBS) and connected to two dispersion compensation fiber modules (DCFM), in order to generate large dispersion. The idler photons were connected to two long-distance single-mode fiber spools (L-SMF), to achieve the same path delay as the signal photons. Finally, all collected photons were sent to four superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs), which were connected to four input channels of a time interval analyzer (TIA). Electrical signals recording the timing information of the pump pulses were sent to the TIA for synchronization (Sync). LPF = long pass filters, HWP = half-wave plate, QWP = quarter-wave plate, FPC = fiber polarization controller.
