Quantum Photonics Lab

About The Lab

In the Quantum Photonics Lab, we develop nanophotonic and optoelectronic technologies for a wide range of applications – from optical computing to communications, networking, and sensing. Our efforts are focused on addressing important challenges in these areas through the design, fabrication, and testing of heterogeneous integrated quantum photonic devices, the exploration of new quantum materials and systems, and the development of 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 quantum photonic integrated circuits based on AlGaAs, silicon nitride, lithium niobate, and silicon, hybrid electro-optomechanical quantum systems, and nanophotonics with engineered quantum emitters.

We're excited to work on this new NSF-funded project on quantum sensing with Prof. Caroline Ross at MIT!

Congrats to QPL grad student Trevor Steiner for recognition of his research and outreach accomplishments!

QPL students Lilli, Nick, Josh, and Trevor will be attending and presenting at the ISS:IQP this summer, congrats!

Our review on integrated quantum photonics with AlGaAs is now published in Optica (in collaboration with Sara Ducci and Florent Baboux)!

Congrats to Sahil on receiving a such a well-deserved award for running the Quantum Photonics Learning Lab! 

Congrats to our QPL students for exciting summer internships, awards, and acceptance to excellent grad programs!

Congrats to Hae and Nick for receiving awards!!!

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

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

Optica's Optics & Photonics News cover article on UCSB/Thorlabs Crystalline Solutions R&D

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

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

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

We're excited to continue working with ARI and NASA to develop quantum photonic transceivers.

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!

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