We demonstrate the entangled photon pair generation via biexciton-resonant hyper parametric scattering in CuCl crystal. Quantum tomographic analysis of the polarization correlation measurements showed that the generated photon pairs had a high degree of polarization entanglement, in consequence of J=0 angular momentum of the biexciton state.
