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.

Plasmonics for Integrated Optics

Plasmonics offers a novel approach to overcome the speed limitations of photonics. More importantly plasmonics is a high-speed solution providing lowest power operation on the smallest footprint with a path for CMOS compatible fabrication. In this plenary talk, after an introduction we will discuss latest results on novel modulators, detectors or THz sensors. We will then discuss challenges ahead as well as opportunities of this new field.

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.

Integrated photonic quantum technologies

Remarkable progress has been made in the development of hardware for quantum technologies. As a platform for quantum technologies, integrated photonics has enabled significant leaps for integrating many components, including programmable circuitry, photon sources and detectors. However, machines such as fault tolerant quantum computers appear to be a long way off for all platforms, including photonics.
