Paper Abstract

We review and compare the results of quantum spatial correlation measurements in parametric down-conversion in the high-gain pulsed regime, with preliminary measurements performed in the low-gain cw-pumped regime. The diagnostics is based on a high quantum efficiency CCD camera, and in the second case the radiation pattern is recorded after temporal integration of the "single-photon" spatial distribution. The effect of the detected number of temporal modes on the accessibility of the sub-shot noise regime is discussed, together with the identification of suitable regimes for weak image detection.
