A Two-Photon Investigation of a Material’s Nonlinear Susceptibility
Name: Olivia Green
Advisors: Cody Leary, Susan Lehman
We modeled the Hong-Ou-Mandel effect for a two-photon state modified by a nonlinear sample interaction and studied how the interaction with a sample material affected the output coincidence signal. We found expressions for coincidence detection rates as a function of time delay between Hong-Ou-Mandel input paths. We present plots of these coincidence detections for when the biphoton coherence frequency bandwidth is greater than the nonlinear sample’s resonance linewidth.
