Abstract

We present a scalable and efficient approach for the generation of frequency-bin encoded qudit states in photonic integrated devices. We exploit a series of coherently pumped resonators, each generating photon pairs in specific frequency bins via spontaneous four-wave mixing. The generated state can be described as a coherent superposition of the states that would describe the pairs generated in each ring separately. As the frequency bin separation is not fixed by the resonator free spectral range, small resonators having large finesse and pair generation rates can be used.
