Abstract
We have developed a new approach to measuring the spatial position of a single photon. Using fibers of different length, all connected to a single detector allows us to use the high timing precision of single photon avalanche diodes (SPAD) to spatially locate the photon. We have built two 8-element detector arrays to measure the full-field quantum correlations in position, momentum and intermediate bases for photon pairs produced in parametric down conversion. The strength of the position-momentum correlations is found to be an order of magnitude below the classical limit.
