Characterization of single photons using two-photon interference

Abstract:

Publisher summary:
This chapter discusses the nature of single-photon light fields, the interference of two photons on a beam splitter and introduces the time-resolved two-photon interference. It presents how a frequency and an emission-time jitter affect the results of a time-resolved two-photon interference experiment. On this basis, the experimental characterization of a single-photon source, based on an adiabatic passage technique, is discussed. The time-resolved two-photon interfere...
