A cascaded monolithic Fabry-Pérot filter system for single photon quantum optics — •Christoph Berkemeier, Andreas Ahlrichs, Benjamin Sprenger, and Oliver Benson — AG Nano Optics, Institut für Physik, HU Berlin
A long-term stable filter system has been set up with an effective free spectral range of several hundred GHz at a full width half maximum of 200 MHz. The filter system consists out of two monolithic Fabry-Pérot filters. It has been used to filter a single mode of a cavity-enhanced parametric down-conversion source to test case its high resolution filtering capabilities. The comb-like frequency spectrum was accurately resolved and shown to be in high accordance with theory.
In a second experiment the indistinguishability of the filtered photon pairs was verified with the Hong-Ou-Mandel effect, which could be measured with a visibility of 96 %. This also shows that undesired birefringence, which is often encountered with monolithic cavities, can be avoided by stress-free mounting.
