Abstract

The ability to obtain quantum-state-preserving frequency conversion is an integral part of any quantum communication system [1,2]. Several solutions have been proposed including sum-frequency generation in second-order nonlinear materials and four-wave mixing (FWM) in third-order materials. It has been proposed to impose an effective second-order nonlinearity in optical fibers by periodical thermal poling of the fiber [3,4]. This gives the advantage from FWM of mode-matching the generated states to those of the transmission fiber. In addition one gets the benefit of large frequency shifts as in second-order materials
