Decoherence in an Electronic Hong-Ou-Mandel Interferometer

Electron-photon analogies in quantum conductors enable to investigate the coherence of single electronic excitations in electron quantum optic systems. I will present experiments performed on the electronic analog of the Hong-Ou-Mandel interferometer [1]. Two independent sources are used to inject single electrons in the outer edge channel of a two dimensional electron gas in the integer quantum Hall regime. Using an electronic beam splitter, we observe two-particle interferences resulting from quantum exchange statistics.

When both particles are emitted in indistinguishable wavepackets with synchronized arrival time on the splitter, they exit in different outputs. Experimentally, this effect is revealed by a reduction (dip) of the low frequency noise of the output current. Remarquably, dip depth depends on the temporal width of the emitted wavepackets and almost vanishes at long widths. This is a signature of decoherence along the propagation length between source and splitter, involving the coupling between the outer edge channel and the inner ones. We observe that this coupling is modified by changing the filling factor. Our results are compared with a theoretical model of decoherence induced by interchannel interactions [2].
