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


We present the general SNR of coincidence measurements of joint probability of entangled-photon-pairs. Experiments with an EMCCD camera show excellent agreement for count rates up to saturation, and an optimum based on electronic noise.
