Nonlocal splitting of photons on a nonlinear chip

Setzpfandt, Frank; Solntsev, Alexander S.; Sukhorukov, Andrey


In spontaneous parametric downconversion (SPDC), a pump photon spontaneously splits into signal and idler photons in media with quadratic nonlinearity. This phenomenon is the most widely utilized source of entangled photons with multiple applications in quantum information technology. SPDC on a chip is usually treated as a local process, meaning that signal and idler photons are created in the same position at which the pump photon is destroyed. We reveal that this locality condition can be...[Show more]
