Photon-pair generation in arrays of cubic nonlinear waveguides

Solntsev, Alexander S.; Sukhorukov, Andrey; Kivshar, Yuri; Neshev, Dragomir


We study photon-pair generation in arrays of cubic nonlinear waveguides through spontaneous four-wave mixing. We analyze numerically the quantum statistics of photon pairs at the array output as a function of waveguide dispersion and pump beam power. We show flexible spatial quantum state control such as pump-power-controlled transition between bunching and anti-bunching correlations due to nonlinear self-focusing.
