Abstract
Ghost interference with entangled photon pairs are studied theoretically. The pump beam in parametric down-conversion is treated as the Gaussian profile, while for the function describing phase matching in the longitudinal direction, both a Gaussian and a sinc function are considered. The numerical results show that the transverse size of the pump beam and transverse coherence width of the parametric fluorescence strongly influence the interference pattern. With the increase of the pump transverse size and the decrease of transverse coherence width, the interference pattern becomes more and more prominent. When the transverse coherence width is small to 0.01  mm category, the Gaussian and sinc models give the same results.
