Time-bin entangled photon pairs from Bragg-reflection waveguides
MetadataShow full item record
Semiconductor Bragg-reflection waveguides are well-established sources of correlated photon pairs as well as promising candidates for building up integrated quantum optics devices. Here, we use such a source with optimized non-linearity for preparing time-bin entangled photons in the telecommunication wavelength range. By taking advantage of pulsed state preparation and efficient free-running single-photon detection, we drive our source at low pump powers, which results in a strong photon-pair correlation. The tomographic reconstruction of the state’s density matrix reveals that our source exhibits a high degree of entanglement. We extract a concurrence of 88.9(1.8)% and a fidelity of 94.2(9)% with respect to a Bell state.
