Abstract

Bragg reflection waveguides are considered as monolithic sources of frequency correlated photon pairs generated using spontaneous-parametric down-conversion in a AlxGa1xAs material system. The source described here offers unprecedented control over the process bandwidth, enabling bandwidth tunability between 1nm and 450nm while using the same wafer structure. This tuning is achieved by exploiting the powerful control over the waveguide dispersion properties afforded by the phase-matching technique used. The offered technology provides a route for realizing electrically pumped, monolithic photon pair sources on a chip with versatile characteristics.
