|Title:||Experimental realization of a low-noise heralded single photon source|
|Published:||January 17, 2011|
|Abstract:||We present a heralded single-photon source with a much lower level of unwanted background photons in the output channel by using the herald photon to control a shutter in the heralded channel. The shutter is implemented using a simple field programmable gate array controlled optical switch.|
