Optical emulation of photon-pair generation in nonlinear lossy waveguides

Grafe, M; Antonosyan, Diana; Solntsev, Alexander; Sukhorukov, Andrey; Szameit, Alexander


We establish theoretically and demonstrate experimentally that photon-pair generation through spontaneous parametric down-conversion in a nonlinear waveguide with scattering or material losses can be effectively emulated by classical laser light propagation through a specially designed linear waveguide circuit. This platform can represent arbitrary photon and pump losses, with a potential for the emulation of non-Markovian decay. We characterize the photon-pair correlation spectrum and observe...[Show more]
