The properties of the backward-wave spontaneous parametric down-conversion (SPDC) in a periodically poled potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) waveguide are studied in the context of creating narrowband heralded sources of single-photon states. The effective index of refraction and spatial profile of different waveguide modes, efficiency of different SPDC processes and purity of heralded photons are calculated numerically for a given waveguide. Compared to the usual co-propagating SPDC, spectral narrowing of the backward-wave SPDC was observed as should be expected. Generation biphoton states in backward-wave regime is experimentally observed in two-photon detection scheme.
Key words: single-photon source / SPDC / PPKTP
