Quantum Photonics Lab

About The Lab

In the Quantum Photonics Lab, we develop nanophotonic and optoelectronic technologies to advance our understanding of quantum light-matter interaction and for a wide range of applications – from novel computing architectures to communications, networking, and sensing. Our efforts are focused on addressing important challenges in these areas through the discovery of new quantum materials and nanostructures, fabricating quantum photonic devices utilizing fundamentally new concepts and prototypes, and developing ultra-sensitive measurement techniques capable of detecting weak signals at the fundamental limits imposed by quantum mechanics. Specific areas of interest are quantum photonic integrated circuits, hybrid electro-optomechanical quantum systems, and nanophotonics with 2D materials and semiconductor quantum dots.

QPL News

QPL Group Member Sahil Patel leading the Quantum Bootcamp for Quantum Foundry undergraduate summer interns.

Couldn't be prouder of my team for persevering this past year! They've produced many exciting research results, developed virtual outreach activities, and created new educational content for QIS!

Excited and honored that my group will be supported for the next 5 years by an NSF CAREER award for integrated quantum photonics!

AVS Quantum Science published our review on chip-scale nonlinear quantum photonics, also featured by AIP.

Congrats to Kamyar and Shaimaa for their research published at Nature Communications and a Featured Perspective article published in APL!

Congrats to Trevor, Josh, Quynh, and the Bowers group on our publication in PRX Quantum, which is also highlighted in Physics Magazine!

The quantum photonics teaching lab is up-and-running. Nice job Quynh and Max!

We're honored to receive a DURIP award from the DoD and AFOSR to develop a quantum photonic computing platform!

The UCSB NSF Quantum Foundry van der Waals assembly lab is operational!

Our lab in the new Henley Hall is ready for move-in!
