Abstract
We report a novel source of twin beams based on modulational instability in high-pressure argon-filled hollow-core kagome-style photonic-crystal fiber. The source is Raman-free and manifests strong photonnumber correlations for femtosecond pulses of squeezed vacuum with a record brightness of similar to 2500 photons per mode. The ultra-broadband (similar to 50 THz) twin beams are frequency tunable and contain one spatial and less than 5 frequency modes. The presented source outperforms all previously reported squeezed-vacuum twin-beam sources in terms of brightness and low mode content.
