Paper Abstract

We investigate quantum interference effects of entangled two-photon states generated in a nonlinear crystal pumped by femtosecond pulses. Attention is devoted to the effects of the pump-pulse profile (pulse duration and chirp) as well as those originating in second-order dispersion, both in the nonlinear crystal and in the optical elements through which the down-converted photons propagate. The characteristics of the pump pulse, along with the dispersion, influence on the visibility and the symmetry of the coincidence-count interference pattern. Nonlocal dispersion cancellation occurs in some cases.
