Abstract

Being able to generate and process quantum states are essential functionalities in quantum communication. Examples of the processing include conversion of the wavelength of quantum states or modification of their temporal shape. The combined use of four-wave mixing and higher order modes in optical fibers has enabled such functionalities. The use of intermodal four-wave mixing among higher order modes, enable frequency conversion over a wavelength bandwidth, large enough to avoid spontaneous Raman scattering, which is otherwise detrimental for quantum communication. The process of intermodal four-wave mixing furthermore has the advantage that the same process may be used to generate single photon states. We review recent results on the use of intermodal four-wave mixing in optical multi-mode fibers for quantum information science and show a theoretical/numerical model that may be used to predict the performance of quantum state processing devices based on four-wave mixing.
