Atom-mediated spontaneous parametric down-conversion in periodic waveguides
We propose the concept of atom-mediated spontaneous parametric down-conversion, in which photon-pair generation can take place only in the presence of a single two-level emitter, relying on the bandgap evanescent modes of a nonlinear periodic waveguide. Using a guided signal mode, an evanescent idler mode, and an atom-like emitter with the idler's transition frequency embedded in the structure, we find a heralded excitation mechanism, in which the detection of a signal photon outside the...[Show more]
