Non-classical states are crucial in many quantum metrology and quantum information processing tasks. Commonly, complete state information is required to proof that it cannot be described by convex mixtures of Gaussian states - a statement that the state is non-classical. We exploit a criterion proposed by Filip and Mišta [1] to up-converted single photons. Correlated photon pairs are produced at 810 nm and 1550 nm by means of non-degenerate down-conversion. The latter are up-converted to 532 nm and analyzed in a Hanbury Brown and Twiss setup. The quantum non-Gaussianity could be confirmed by the single photon and vacuum contribution of the state while higher photon number states could be neglected to a very good approximation. Our experiments show that quantum non-Gaussianity is maintained by means of frequency up-conversion.
