dc.description.abstractWe report the experimental reconstruction of the statistical properties of an ultrafast pulsed type II parametric down-conversion source in a periodically poled potassium titanyl phosphate waveguide at telecom wavelengths, with almost perfect photon-number correlations. We use a photon-number-resolving time-multiplexed detector based on a fiber-optical setup and a pair of avalanche photodiodes. By resorting to a germane data-pattern tomography, we assess the properties of the nonclassical light states with unprecedented precision.
