Optimization of photon pair generation in dual-element PPKTP waveguide1



Xiao Tang, Oliver T. Slattery, Lijun Ma


A compact scheme for high-speed frequency doubling and down-conversion on a single dual-element PPKTP waveguide is investigated. Optimal temperature is achieved and photon pair coincidence is observed at over GHz repetition rate with pulsed pump input scheme.
