Quantum Photonic Integrated Circuits

The development of scalable optical technologies for quantum cryptography, communications, and computing requires reducing existing table-top experiments to fully integrated chip-scale photonic circuits. We utilize several approaches for all-on-chip quantum photonics, including AlGaAs-on-insulator, silicon nitride, and suspended III-Vs on silicon, to combine ultra-bright deterministic and probabilistic single-photon sources, entangled-pair sources, and quantum frequency combs with ultra-low-loss photonic circuits, passive and active components, and superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors. By monolithically integrating all quantum photonic components onto a single platform, we significantly reduce the size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) while simultaneously enhancing the power and phase stability, scalability, and manufacturability. 

Key application areas we develop our photonic hardware for include quantum information processing, quantum communications, and remote sensing.
