Abstract

A method is presented for the first time to our knowledge for generating multiple-channel polarization-entangled photon pairs simultaneously based on type II quasi-phase-matched spontaneous parametric downconversion pumped by monochromatic light in a single periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN) crystal. The expression for the count of the polarization-entangled photon pairs is analytically obtained. It is predicted that one-, two-, and even three-channel polarization-entangled photon pairs can be simultaneously generated just by suitably choosing the PPLN grating period and the pump frequency.
