Abstract

We investigate spontaneous parametric downconversion (SPDC) in a waveguide array supporting two strongly coupled topological guided modes. We show that it is possible to generate photon pairs that are hyper-entangled in energy and path. We study the state robustness against positional disorder of the waveguides, in terms of Schmidt number (SN), fidelity, and density matrix. We show that quantum correlations are in general robust due to the peculiar interplay between structure topology and second-order nonlinear interaction.
