Abstract

A technique to generate polarization entangled photons using concurrent type-I and type-0 second-order nonlinear processes in monolithic Bragg reflection waveguides is presented and analyzed. Concurrent phase matching is achieved by lithographic tuning of the waveguide ridge width. Nearly perfect entanglement is achievable on-chip through appropriate epistructure design without the need of spectral filtering and group velocity compensation. Theoretical calculations predict that a high quantum interference visibility could be experimentally achieved with the pair generation rate of each process being approximately 3.0×106pairs/s/mW/GHz
