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 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

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

The QPL is looking forward to collaborating with Prof. Zhang's group on algorithm/hardware co-design for quantum generative learning with integrated photonics.

We're excited to have Elings Postdoc Fellow Shaimaa Azzam and graduate students Kamyar Parto, Sahil Patel, and Nick Lewis join our lab!

A breakthrough in SNSPD single-photon timing jitter with sub-3 ps timing jitter. This research was a highly collaborative effort led by JPL and is highlighted in Nature Photonics.

Congrats to Trevor, Kamyar, and Quynh for having their abstracts accepted for talks at this year's FiO+LS/Quantum 2.0 Conference!

Quantum optical computing at UCSB

For quantum photonic transceiver development in partnership with Amethyst Research Inc.

We're excited to work on photonic integration of van der Waals quantum emitters, an NSF-funded project

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