A polarization maintaining scheme for 1.5 μm polarization entangled
photon pair generation in optical fibers

Qiang Zhou, Wei Zhang, Tianzhu Niu, Shuai Dong, Yidong Huang, Jiangde Peng
In this paper, the generation of polarization entangled photon pairs at 1.5 {\mu}m is experimentally demonstrated utilizing a polarization maintaining all-fiber loop, consisting of a piece of commercial polarization maintaining fiber and a polarization beam splitter/combiner with polarization maintaining fiber pigtails. A quantum state tomography measurement is performed to analyze the entanglement characteristic of the generated quantum state. In the experiment, a polarization entangled Bell state is generated with a entanglement fidelity of 0.97+/-0.03 and a purity of 0.94+/-0.03 demonstrating that the proposed scheme can realize polarization entangled photon pair generation with polarization maintaining property which is desired in applications of quantum communication and quantum information.
