28 ULB contribution to WP3.2 We have demonstrated a source of photon pairs based on parametric fluorescence in periodically poled twin hole fibers NBH1- 06. As far as we know this is the only kind of fiber optics source of photon pairs that uses a chi_2 non linearity. If the source can be made more narrow band, it would be particularly useful for fiber optics quantum communication systems. Work on improving the source is under way. (This is a collaboration with Southampton University, where the samples are manufactured). No need to report the following:  We have studied the possibility of using vector modulational instability in photonic crystal fibers as bright tunable fiber optics source of photon pairs. During preliminary work, we noticed some unexpected non linear effects that were reported in NHB2-06. Their relevance for such sources is under study.

31 Time-bin entanglement sources Two-photon excitation of an excitonic transition in a single CdSe/ZnSe quantum dot. The green line is the frequency doubled laser frequency. In the middle trace the excitation is on resonance. In the top (bottom) trace the excitation is above (below) resonance and the second harmonic generation by the bulk crystal can be seen. This set of traces shows that this excitation is not resonant.
