Abstract

We report the efficient generation of correlated photon pairs by four-wave mixing in a 1.8 meter long microstructure fiber. The detected coincidence rate is 10,000/s with 0.8 nm collection bandwidth, the highest to date in a fiber-based photon source. The measured coincidence/accidental contrast is greater than 300:1, also the highest to date. We further examine the nonclassicality of the source as defined by the Zou-Wang-mandel inequality. The inequality is violated by 900 times the uncertainty.
