Abstract

Photonic quantum states generated from atomic systems play prominent roles in long-distance quantum networks and scalable quantum communication, because entangled photon pairs from atomic ensembles possess a universal identity and narrow spectral bandwidth for quantum repeaters. In this study, we propose and demonstrate a novel, to the best of our knowledge, method for the joint spectral intensity measurement of narrowband continuous wave (CW)-mode photon pairs from a warm atomic ensemble using stimulated emission and beat interferometry for the first time. Our approach offers the advantage of sub-megahertz resolution, absolute optical frequency measurements with megahertz-level accuracy, fast collection time, and high signal-to-noise ratio; thus, our method can find important applications in the characterization of narrowband photon pairs generated from sources including atoms and artificially structured material.
