Generation of uncorrelated photon-pairs in optical fibres

Abstract:

Light, which is composed of discrete quanta, or photons, is one of the most fundamental concepts in physics. Being an elementary entity, the behaviour of photons is governed by the rules of quantum mechanics. The ability to create, manipulate and measure quantum states of light is not only useful in foundational tests of quantum theory, but also in a wide range of quantum technologies – which aim to utilize non-classical properties of quantum systems to perform tasks not possible with classic...
