Lattice topology and spontaneous parametric down-conversion in quadratic nonlinear waveguide arrays

Leykam, Daniel; Solntsev, Alexander; Desyatnikov, Anton S; Sukhorukov, Andrey


We analyze spontaneous parametric down-conversion in various experimentally feasible one-dimensional quadratic nonlinear waveguide arrays, with emphasis on the relationship between the lattice's topological invariants and the biphoton correlations. Nontrivial topology results in a nontrivial "winding" of the array's Bloch waves, which introduces additional selection rules for the generation of biphotons, independent of existing control using the pump beam's spatial profile and phase-matching...[Show more]
