New pu­bli­ca­ti­on from Ni­na Lan­ge

In our paper, we demonstrate the generation of degenerate photon pairs from spontaneous parametric down-conversion (SPDC) in titanium-indiffused waveguides in lithium niobate at cryogenic temperatures. We characterize the indistinguishability of our photons with a Hong-Ou-Mandel interference measurement. We show sufficient understanding and control of the cryogenic nonlinear process, which has wider implications when combining quasi-phase-matched nonlinear optical processes with other cryogenic photonic quantum technologies, such as superconducting detectors.
