Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Very efficient sources of pure single photons can be realized by combining optimized, heralded nondeterministic photon sources with spatial or temporal multiplexing. Low-loss synchronization elements can further enhance scalability, enabling various multi-photon quantum information applications.
