Abstract

We demonstrate that by an asymmetric coupling of two nonlinear waveguiding cores to the third strongly absorptive core, it is possible to realize single-photon generation on demand from an input coherent state. This three-core fiber setup can also be implemented for achieving strong photon-number squeezing even for large losses in side cores.
