We generate polarization-entangled photon pairs in
the 1550-nm wavelength telecom band, using spontaneous fourwave
mixing in a highly nonlinear fiber loop. With accidental
coincidences subtracted, we obtain coincidence fringes with
visibilities greater than 86%, and thus observe a violation of
Clauser, Horne, Shimony and Holt (CHSH) inequality by 2.7
standard deviations. The experimental setup is built using only
fiber connections, which contribute to its long time stability.
