Using Temperature to Reduce Noise in Quantum Frequency Conversion



Paulina Kuo, Jason S. Pelc, Carsten Langrock, M. M. Fejer


A main source of noise in quantum frequency conversion is spontaneous Raman scattering, which can be reduced by lowering the operating temperature. We show reduction in dark count rates that agrees well with theory.
