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


We present a recent numerical analysis investigating spontaneous parametric four-wave mixing in third-order nonlinear waveguides with different tapering patterns. We find that these devices could lead to efficient highly-pure single-photon sources.
