Integrated programmable photonics
Dr. Daniel Pérez López, CTO, Co-Founder, iPronics Programmable Photonics
Daniel Pérez-López (M.Sc., Ph.D.) is cofounder and CTO at iPronics Programmable Photonics. He has spent his professional life on the creation, development, and commercialization of programmable photonics: giving to large-scale photonic integrated circuits flexibility through run-time software programming. His career combined academic and deep-tech industry paths with his PhD and postdoc research at the Universitat Politècnica de València’s, Photonics Research Labs, where he developed novel photonic integrated circuit designs and architectures that can be reconfigured to perform multipurpose functionalities. His work has been recognized, among others, by the 2017 IEEE Photonics Society Graduate Student Fellowship and the 2023 Photonics100 list by ElectroOptics. Read more
Integration of quantum light sources, circuits and superconducting detectors on nanophotonic chips
Professor Carsten Schuck, Munster University
The vision of our research is centered around a versatile quantum technology platform on silicon chips that allows for realizing applications in quantum communication, quantum information processing and quantum sensing. We pursue this goal by leveraging modern nanofabrication capabilities for integrating quantum emitters and superconducting nanowire single photon detectors (SNSPD) with reconfigurable nanophotonic circuits.
