Abstract

We report the implementation of a high-rate source of single- and two-photon states. By combining the advantages of short pulses and cavities, heralding rates as high as 200 kHz have been obtained for the single photons, as well as 250 Hz for the two-photon states. In this setup, homodyne measurements are conditioned by the heralding of the quantum states thanks to the introduction of a low-loss optical delay line in the heralded states path. This enables the detection of most of the heralded events, and fidelities reaching 68.5% (91% with correction for detection efficiency) and 50.4% (85% with correction) were obtained for the single- and two-photon states, respectively. Such high rates and fidelities in the generation of elementary Fock states may open the path for the production of complex quantum states.

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Experimental setup for the generation of single and two-photon states. SHG: second harmonic generation, OPA: optical parametric amplification, Pol: polarizer, HD: homodyne detection, F: spectral filter, SPCM: single photon counting module. The radius of curvature of the concave mirrors of both cavities is 1 m. Inset: stability of the OPA cavity. Jumps correspond either to an automatic re-locking of the cavity, or to a manual adjustment of the cavity length. Apart from the input couplers, the reflectivity of the mirrors are R>99.9% at 850 nm for the SHG cavity and 425 nm for the OPA cavity.

Fig. 2 Illustration of the impact points on the spherical mirrors within experimental conditions, leading to a 192 ns delay. The left panel is a front view of the spherical mirrors, turned by 90°. The right panel is a side view. The input/output beams are not aligned in a 3D context, and can be inserted/extracted by auxiliary spherical mirrors.

Table 1 Comparison to previous results in similar experiments. The repetition rate refers to the emission rate of the pulsed laser source. CW: experiments performed in the Continuous Wave regime. *: in ref. [13], the corrected fidelities (∼ 65% for the single-photon state and ∼ 43% for the two-photon state) are only corrected for the losses of the HD and do not include the mode-mismatch inexorably leading to lower fidelities. They should be carefully taken into account for comparison.
