Title: Heralded, pure-state single-photon source based on a Potassium Titanyl Phosphate waveguide
Published: February 15, 2010
Abstract: WWe analyze the generation of single spatial mode, spectrally uncorrelated photon pairs via type II spontaneous parametric downconversion in a Potassium Titanyl Phosphate (KTP) waveguide using real experimental parameters. We show that this source can be used as an efficient, heralded, pure-state single-photon source.
