Paper Abstract

We propose and experimentally demonstrate a generation scheme of telecom-band fiber-based frequency-degenerate polarization-entanglement photon pair source. Basing on the vector spontaneous four wave mixing process in a Sagnac fiber loop along the clockwise and counter-clockwise directions, two frequency-degenerate and polarization orthogonal biphoton states generate and then lead to the polarization entanglement states by the interference at the beamsplitter. The raw fringe visibilities of the two-photon interferences are 97% and 92%, respectively. Information can be encoded on the generated photon pairs using the polarization entangled Bell states. It is demonstrated by a simplified Bell state measurement with a fringe visibility of 83%.
