Paper Abstract

We derive a CW theory for optical-fiber photon-pair sources, including the effect of non-zero response time of the fiber's Kerr nonlinearity. We also include the effects of realistic transmission and detection losses. This theory predicts stronger photon-number correlations than seen experimentally with a pulsed pump, showing the need for development of a pulsed pump theory.
