Abstract

We demonstrate broadband polarization-entangled photon pair generation in a poled fiber phase matched for Type II downconversion in the 1.5 μm telecom band. Even with signal–idler separation greater than 100 nm, we observe fringe visibilities greater than 97% and tangle greater than 0.8. A Hong–Ou–Mandel interference experiment is also used to experimentally confirm the broadband nature of the entanglement.

(a) The computed joint-spectral amplitude of the downconverted Type II photon pairs generated in the poled fiber. (b) The spectrally entangled nature of the biphoton allows us to carve up the spectrum into separate frequency-conjugate pairs (λs, λi) using WDM filters.

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

CAR measurements for three sets of frequency conjugate photon pairs. Pair generation rates per unit of average pump power are also provided. The solid curves are Eq. (2) plotted as a function of the photon pair generation rate μ. The inset for the first figure shows the histogram collected by the TIA for the 1530–1570  nm pair when the generation rate is μ=3.2×103pairs/pulse.

(a) Experimental setup for two-photon interference. A simple PA consisting of an achromatic HWP, QWP, and POL are used in the idler (λi) arm. A more elaborate time-multiplexing scheme (involving a PBS-based MZI) is used in the signal (λs) arm so that both H and V (or D/A, depending on HWP and QWP settings) polarizations can be detected during the same experimental run using only one detector. (b) Representative histograms from the TIA are shown when the idler is A polarized and when the signal is H/V polarized or D/A polarized.

Results of the two-photon interference measurements for the three frequency-conjugate pairs. The diagonal-basis visibilities are written below each plot. The pair generation rate was 3×103pairs/pulse for the 1530/1570 filter set, while at 1510/1590 and 1490/1610nm the pump power was increased so that the pair generation rate was 5×103pairs/pulse.

(a) Experimental setup for the HOM experiment. (b) Results of the HOM experiment, with a FWHM dipwidth of 38.9 fs; this corresponds to a more than 120 nm bandwidth for the downconverted 1.5 μm biphotons. The raw coincidences are plotted along with the accidentals. The raw visibility is found to be 97.0%, but reaches 98.8% when accidentals are subtracted.
