This thesis contains experimental and theoretical work based on pair-photon interference in integrated photonic devices. Multimode interference (MMI) devices fabricated with silicon oxynitride technology are used to experimentally demonstrate high visibility pair-photon Hong-Ou-Mandel (HOM) interference. A theoretical model of pair-photon interference is derived for the self-imaging multimode interference that occurs between guided modes in the MMI device , and the scalability of MMI devices for use in quantum photonic networks is considered by modelling serially concatenated devices for decoherent intermodal dispersion effects.
