We report the complete measurement of the spectral properties of entangled photon pairs generated via frequency-degenerate type-I spontaneous parametric down-conversion pumped by a cw laser in both the collinear and the noncollinear regimes. The measurement includes the single-photon spectra as well as the two-photon joint spectra. Our results reveal interesting yet subtle differences between the collinear and the noncollinear regimes of frequency-degenerate type-I spontaneous parametric down-conversion. The single-photon and two-photon spectral measurements are in good agreement with the numerical simulation taking into account the tuning curve and the experimental geometry.
