The gratings G1 and G2 are Spectrogon model 715.701.990 and 715.701.350, respectively. Both gratings have the same line spacing (2400 grooves/mm) and blaze wavelength (800 nm) but different in size. The detailed specifications can be found at http://www.spectrogon.com/gratpulse.html.

The measurement errors are mainly from measuring the distance G, ±1 mm, and the angle θ′, ±2°.

The demonstration in Ref. [8] is local in the sense that both photons propagate through the same optical fiber. Furthermore, actual reduction of a broadened wave packet is not experimentally demonstrated.

We have assumed γ 2D4L4≪(β1z1+β2z2)2. This condition holds in general as the crystal parameter DL is much smaller than the external parameters β1z1 and β2z2.

Dispersion cancellation of Ref. [10, 11] is based on Hong-Ou-Mandel interference in which two photons meet again before getting detected. It, therefore, is not a nonlocal effect and there exists a classical analog. On the other hand, in the nonlocal dispersion cancellation of Ref. [1], dispersion experienced by one photon is nonlocally cancelled by dispersion experienced by it’s entangled pair photon which may be arbitrarily far apart. See Ref. [13, 14].
