Title: Efficient, low-noise, single-photon frequency conversion
Published: June 09, 2013
Abstract: We demonstrate simultaneous low-noise and efficient frequency conversion in a periodically poled LiNbO3 waveguide with spectral filtering. We achieve >50% external conversion efficiency and 600 noise counts per second at peak conversion.
