Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We present a fiber-optic source of quantum-correlated photon pairs that is well suited for use in 1550nm quantum communication and cryptography networks. Xonclassical properties are demonstrated using Geiger-mode InGaAs/InP avalanche photodiodes.
