Abstract

We report on the experimental realization of a multiple-DWDM-channel heralded single-photon source in a periodically poled lithium niobate waveguide. Our single photon at the telecom wavelength covers more than 40 channels of the ITU grid. All channels have virtually identical efficiencies, and the multi-photon emission probability is reduced by a factor up to more than 150 compared to a Poissonian light source. Together with the all-fiber structure, all these advantages make our heralded single-photon source suitable for real-world quantum networks. The implementation with a 50 MHz pulsed laser provides a data rate compatible with current quantum communication systems, while being able to be pumped at higher repetition rates.

(a) The red curve is the simulation of SPDC efficiency of our PPLN waveguide. The FWHM is 70 nm, which covers part of S-band, L-band and whole C-band. s n and i n ( n=1,2,3 ) are daughter photon pairs, which represent CH26-CH24 and CH28-CH30 in the experiment, respectively. The i n are used as heralding photons to trigger the s n ones. (b) Schematic of multi-channel heralded single-photon source (EDFA: erbium doped fiber amplifier, WDM: 780-1560 nm wavelength division multiplexer, DWDM: dense wavelength division multiplexing, BS: fiber beam splitter, Det.: InGaAs single photon detector).

(a) Measured the relationship between P(1) and pump power; Measured g (2) (0) as a linear function of the pump power. (b) The relationship between g (2) (τ) and delay time. The pump power is 4.77 μW and collection time is 600 s. Our detectors can delay the gate with the accuracy of 0.01 ns. In this case, the interval of delay-time τ is 20 ns.
