Title Photon pair generating device
Abstract (US7649679)
A photon pair generating device capable of further increasing generation efficiency of a correlation photon pair is provided, the photon pair generating device generating the correlation photon pair by a hyper-parametric scattering.
A quantum well is provided in a resonator.
An incident light radiated from a light source to the resonator resonates therein and becomes a particular resonator mode.
The generation efficiency of the correlation photon pair by the hyper-parametric scattering in the quantum well is enhanced by disposing the quantum well in a position where electric field strength of the light becomes higher by this resonator mode.
Scope of claims [claim1]
1. A photon pair generating device, comprising: a light source that emits a first light and a second light having different frequencies with reverse polarization rotation directions to each other;
a resonator which includes a correlation photon pair generating member; wherein
the resonator is irradiated by a first photon from the first light source and a second photon from the second light source, the first photon and the second photon, with reverse polarization rotation directions to each other, have different frequencies from each other; and
the resonator is provided to resonate the irradiated first and second photons so that the intensity of the light is enhanced, wherein
the correlation photon pair generating member causes (i) the received first and second photons to exit the resonator in resonance so that an exciton molecule is generated and (ii) a third photon and a fourth photon having a quantum correlation to each other to be emitted as a correlation photon pair in response to a decay of the exciton molecule.
[claim2]
2. The photon pair generating device as set forth in claim 1, wherein the correlation photon pair generating member is a quantum well or a quantum dot.
[claim3]
3. The photon pair generating device as set forth in claim 1, wherein the frequency of the first photon is made to be equal to, by the light source, a frequency of an energy level in a mode where a resonator mode is bound with an exciton in the correlation photon pair generating member.
[claim4]
4. The photon pair generating device as set forth in claim 1, wherein the frequency of the second photon is set by the light source such that a component of the exciton molecule and a component of light in a resonator mode in a two-particle excitation state exists in the correlation photon pair generating member.
[claim5]
5. The photon pair generating device as set forth in claim 1, wherein the correlation photon pair generating member has a size so that a component of the exciton molecule in a two-particle excitation state and a component of light in a resonator mode in a two-particle excitation state exists in the correlation photon pair generating member.
[claim6]
6. The photon pair generating device as set forth in claim 1, wherein the correlation photon pair generating member is provided in a position where electric field strength becomes higher in accordance with a light mode in the resonator.
