QI/AMO Seminar: "Successes and limits in engineering photon pair sources"

Speaker Evan Meyer-Scott, Paderborn University
Date: 9/20/2017
Time: 1 p.m.

Event Contact: Betsy Greifenkamp

Department of Physics

Event Type: Seminar/Symposium

I will present a realization of a high-performance photon pair source based on parametric down-conversion, and discuss a limit to the performance of photon pair sources in general. The former is a fully fiber-coupled waveguide pair source with 46% raw heralding efficiency, and no optical alignment required. The latter restricts the achievable heralding efficiency when spectrally filtering the photons to increase the purity.
