Abstract

We present experimental results on quantum frequency down-conversion of indistinguishable single photons emitted by an InAs/GaAs quantum dot at 904 nm to the telecom C-band at 1557 nm. Hong-Ou-Mandel (HOM) interference measurements are shown prior to and after the down-conversion step. We perform Monte-Carlo simulations of the HOM experiments taking into account the time delays of the different interferometers used and the signal-to-background ratio and further estimate the impact of spectral diffusion on the degree of indistinguishability. By that we conclude that the down-conversion step does not introduce any loss of HOM interference visibility. A noise-free conversion-process along with a high conversion-efficiency (> 30 %) emphasize that our scheme is a promising candidate for an efficient source of indistinguishable single photons at telecom wavelengths.

Figures (4)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Experimental setup for excitation of the QD sample, frequency conversion and two-photon interference. (a) Excitation light at 884 nm is provided by a pulsed laser with a repetition rate of 80 MHz and 4 ps pulse width. The pulses are split up and recombined within a MZI in order to create double pulses with a spacing of 4 ns. Subsequently, the excitation light enters our confocal microscope through a microscope objective (MO) of 100× magnification and NA = 0.9. Microscope objective and sample reside within a liquid helium cryostat at a temperature of 10 K. The single fluorescence photons are directed through an etalon (ET), longpass filter (LP) and bandpass filter (BP) in order to separate fluorescence wavelength and background light such as scattered laser light. Eventually, a single mode fiber is installed in the confocal plane of the microscope for collecting and directing the single photons to further experiments and analysis. (b) The unconverted single photons enter a second MZI in order to compensate the time delay of 4 ns, which was introduced in (a). The two-photon interference takes place at the output BS of the MZI. Photons at both output arms of the MZI are detected by Si-APDs. (c) For the frequency conversion, the fluorescence photons are mixed with a pump field at 2155 nm at a dichroic mirror (DM) and coupled to the MgO:PPLN-waveguide trough an aspheric lens (AL). The converted photons at 1557 nm are spectrally cleaned up at a bandpass filter with central wavelength of 1550 nm and in a fiber-based setup consisting of a circulator (Circ.) and fiber Bragg-grating (FBG). Finally, the converted photons enter a fiber-based MZI. In analogy to (b) the photons undergo two-photon interference at the output fiber beam splitter (FBS) and are detected by SSPDs.

Fig. 2 Measurement of second order coherence function g(2) (τ) (a) before and (b) after the down-conversion. The values of   nir g E , corr ( 2 ) ( 0 ) = 0.153 and   tel g E , corr ( 2 ) ( 0 ) = 0.117 reveal a clear signature of antibunching. The scattered dots represent normalized measured data, whereas the solid lines with shaded area correspond to Monte-Carlo simulations.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 (a) QD emission spectrum with bandpass and etalon filtering. A signal-to-background ratio of QD photon emission related to background fluorescence emission of 11.5 can be extracted by integration within the bandpass filter window. (b) Multiplying the unfiltered QD emission spectrum (green) with the spectral, relative conversion efficiency (black) yields the spectrum of photons that become converted. Integration within the FBG filter window yields an SBR of 17.2.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 Measurement of two-photon interference contrast (a) before and (b) after down-conversion. The measured data (black dots) are compared to Monte-Carlo simulations (shaded areas) yielding wave packet overlaps of 48.6 % and 26.3 % prior to and after the conversion step, respectively (for details refer to analysis given in the main text). The reduced overlap of the converted photons arises from a stronger spectral diffusion of the emission line due to the different MZI configuration (cf. inset). The dashed horizontal lines represent the expected peak height at zero delay for V = 0 under the given experimental conditions.
