Generation of correlated photon pairs in different frequency ranges — •Mihai Macovei, Fernando Oster, and Christoph H Keitel — Max-Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, Saupfercheckweg 1, D-69117 Heidelberg
The feasibility to generate entangled photon pairs at variable frequencies is investigated. For this purpose, we consider the interaction of an off-resonant laser field with a two-level system possessing broken inversion symmetry. We show that the system generates non-classical photon pairs exhibiting strong intensity-intensity correlations. The intensity of the applied laser tunes the degree of correlation while the detuning controls the frequency of one of the photons which can be in the THz-domain. Furthermore, we observe the violation of a Cauchy-Schwarz inequality characterizing these photons.
