Quantum Photonics Lab

About The Lab

In the Quantum Photonics Lab, we develop nanophotonic and optoelectronic technologies for a wide range of applications – from programmable optical computing 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 and testing heterogeneous quantum photonic devices, and developing ultra-sensitive measurement techniques for benchmarking device performance spanning visible to telecommunication wavelengths, cryogenic to ambient temperatures, and DC to RF frequencies. Specific areas of interest are heterogeneous quantum photonic integrated circuits based on AlGaAs, silicon nitride, and silicon, hybrid electro-optomechanical quantum systems with surface acoustic wave resonators, and nanophotonics with 2D materials and III-V quantum dots.

QPL News

Congrats to Kamyar for receiving a fellowship to work with LANL on his 2D material single-quantum emitter project!

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! See SPIE's 2022 Women in Optics Planner and the MIT Rising Stars to learn more about her research accomplishments and great advice to young researchers.

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!

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

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

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