    Discovery Could Enable Large-Scale Quantum Photonics

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    An integrated photon source with the potential to deliver large-scale quantum photonics has been developed by physicists at the University of Bristol.

    Integrated quantum photonics is a promising platform for developing quantum technologies due to its capacity to generate and control photons in miniaturized optical circuits. Leveraging the mature CMOS silicon industry for the fabrication of integrated devices would enable circuits with the equivalent of thousands of optical fibers and components to be integrated on a single mm-scale chip.

    One challenge that has limited the scaling of integrated quantum photonics has been the lack of on-chip sources able to generate high-quality single photons. “Without low-noise photon…
