Abstract

A highly nonlinear (γ≃3700/W·m) silicon coupled-resonator-optical-waveguide generated heralded single photons (g (2) (0) ≤ 0.19 ±0.03) and widely-spaced photon pairs with coincidences-to-accidentals ratio >10 (cw) and >23 (pulsed), and outperformed a 54x longer silicon nanophotonic waveguide.
