We present a new scientific software which is able to simulate any experimental setup based on photon pair creation with spontaneous parametric down-conversion in periodically poled crystals. Moreover, our software is able to optimise experimental parameters for the sake of high down-conversion efficiency and quantum performance. Given the optional input of any relevant individual experimental setup, the large number of output parameters and plots and the user-friendly intuitive graphical user interface, we believe that our software can be a helpful tool to any experimentalist who uses the quasi-phase-matching technique to generate collinearly propagating photon pairs.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
