Abstract

We report a bright and tunable source of spectrally pure heralded single photons in the telecom O-Band, based on cross-polarized four wave mixing in a commercial birefringent optical fiber. The source can achieve a purity of 85%, heralding efficiency of 30% and a coincidence-to-accidentals ratio of 108. Furthermore, through the measurements of joint spectral intensities, we find that the fiber is homogeneous over at least 45 centimeters and thus can potentially realize 4 sources that can produce identical quantum states of light. This paves the way for a cost-effective fiber-optic approach to implement multi-photon quantum optics experiments.

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3. Schematic of the experimental setup for realizing XFWM to generate heralded single photons at 1310 nm. The pump is derived from a Ti:Sapphire laser driving an OPO resulting in fs pulses at 1000 nm nanometer, which is launched into the FWM fiber (PM980) with the polarization aligned along the slow axis of the fiber. The signal at 810 nm and idler at 1310 nm are separated from each other using a dichroic mirror (DM). The pump is filtered from the generated photons using spectral filters in each arm before collection into single mode fibers. When performing measurements of the JSI, a tunable O-band seed laser was coupled into the fiber together with the pump and is measured on an OSA (OSA(1)). The stimulated FWM signal was then measured for a range of seed wavelengths, on a second OSA (OSA(2)) by diverting the beam to a second collection fiber.

(c) Variation of the marginal $g^{(2)}_{m}(0)$ for the signal (red circles) and idler (blue circles) as a function of pump power and (d) $g^{(2)}_h(0)$ for the idler (blue circles) as a function of the coincidence count rate, red line is a linear fit to the data as a guide to the eye.

Fig. 9.
Fig. 9. Experimentally measured identical JSIs of 4 different fibers (a-d), $L$ = 15 cm each. The pump bandwidth has been increased to improve the measureable signal level. As a result these JSIs are no longer fully factorable, however with the correct pump filtering in place a factorable state would be achieved.

Fig. 11.
Fig. 11. (a) Original JSI before calibration. The tunable O-band laser was scanned through 304 different set points in an increasing fashion. Due to the instability in the actual laser wavelength compared to the set-point we simultaneoulsy record the seed spectrum on a second OSA. (b) Illustrates the difference between the seed wavelength setting for a given set-point and the measured seed wavelength. The slices in the JSI that stand out the most as being in the incorrect position correspond to the points in the calibration plot where the seed wavelength is the most incorrect. (c) Final restacked/recalibrated JSI. By using the calibration data in panel (b) we can sort the slices of the JSI by the actual measured seed wavelength. This corrects the position of the slice in the main stack and produces a JSI that is more tolerable.
