Polarization-entangled photon pair generation based on two scalar scattering processes of the vector four- photon scattering has been demonstrated experimentally in high nonlinear microstructure fiber with birefringence. By controlling pump polarization state, polarization-entangled Bell states can be realized. It provides a simple way to realize efficient and compact fiber-based polarization-entangled photon pair sources.
