27 April 2016 QPMoptics: a novel tool to simulate and optimise photon pair creation
Author Affiliations +
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.
