We experimentally demonstrate temporal shaping of a heralded single-photon wave packet, prepared by conditional measurement of the idler photon of the entangled photon pair in the process of spontaneous parametric down-conversion. The heralded single-photon wave packet for the signal photon, after being tailored with the help of chirp broadening and interference effects, was observed directly by measuring the time-correlated single-photon-counting histogram. We also demonstrate remote control of the temporal shaping effect by spectral filtering of the idler photon.
