Abstract

We report a high-efficiency source of cross-polarized photon pairs via type-II quasi-phase matched spontaneous parametric down-conversion using periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN). The photon pairs are generated from the PPLN in a fifth-order quasi-phase matching condition around 800 nm, which matches the wavelength band of efficient Si avalanche photo-diodes. We obtained the photon-pair production rate of 6.8 × 105 s-1 mW-1.
