Paper Abstract

We report on a guided wave asynchronous heralded photon source based on the creation of non-degenerate photon pairs by spontaneous parametric down conversion in a Periodically Poled Lithium Niobate waveguide. We show that using the signal photon at 1310\nm as a trigger, a gated detection process permits announcing the arrival of single photons at 1550nm at the output of a single mode optical fiber with a high probability of 0.37. At the same time the multi-photon emission probability is reduced by a factor of 10 compared to poissonian light sources.
