Integrated devices and high-dimensional photonic systems for quantum technologies

Quantum technologies promise a change of paradigm for many fields of application, for example in communication systems, in high-performance computing and simulation of quantum systems, as well as in sensor technology. However, the experimental realization of suitable system still poses considerable challenges. Current efforts in photonic quantum target the implementation of practical and scalable systems, where the realization of controlled quantum network structures is key for many applications.

Single solid-state quantum emitter photonics for on-chip quantum information

Single solid-state quantum emitters have demonstrated considerable potential for the implementation of important quantum photonic devices such as on-demand single-photon sources or deterministic quantum logic gates. Converting a bare quantum emitter into a device with sufficient performance for use in quantum photonic systems requires an efficient, high cooperativity interface to accessing optical fields.

Quantum photonics based on nonlinear integrated optics

is the title of the presentation by invited speaker Christine Silberhorn, Professor, Paderborn University, Germany. The IQO group develops novel optical devices and methods for possible future applications in quantum information processing, quantum communication and for fundamental quantum experiments. Exploiting the potential of integrated optical devices enables on the one hand the realization of compact, miniaturized and rugged quantum lights sources and converters.
