Integrated quantum photonics – Presented by Andrea Fiore, Eindhoven University of Technology, Dep. Applied Physics at the 19th edition European Conference on Integrated Optics, which takes place on 3 – 5 April 2017 at Eindhoven University of Technology, Blauwe Zaal in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
Integrated quantum photonics enables the scaling of quantum optics experiments to a level of complexity and photon number beyond the possibilities of table-top set-ups. In the long term it may also allow the implementation of small-scale quantum simulators involving few tens of photonic qubits. To this aim, however, extremely efficient single-photon sources, detectors and passive optics must be integrated within a single quantum photonic platform. Additionally, the sources must be fully tuneable so that single photons produced by different sources can be indistinguishable and interfere with each other. I will present our progress in the integration of sources, waveguides and detectors on a GaAs quantum photonic platform.
