Abstract

A parametric down conversion source pumped by a monochromatic laser will produce frequency entangled photon pairs. We demonstrate this by an experiment in which five-dimensional frequency entanglement is manipulated at telecommunication wavelengths using commercially available components such as electro-optic phase modulators and narrowband frequency filters. A theoretical intuition for this approach is developed by introducing the notion of entanglement. We conclude by showing that using this method one can in principle violate the CHSH, the CGLMP, and a new – as yet unnamed – Bell inequalities.
