Integrated Quantum Photonics: Wave of the Future?

Integrated quantum photonic technology offers a promising route for building large-scale ultrafast fault-tolerant quantum information processors. Thanks to advances in ultra-low loss materials and fabrication techniques, the field has witnessed rapid growth; many components such as quantum and classical light sources, large-scale fully programmable linear interferometers and integrated single-photon detectors have been demonstrated, showing a practical path toward large-scale quantum circuits.

Over the last two decades, table-top experiments with bulky optical components have shown the promise offered by optical quantum technologies, as exemplified by the recent demonstrations of quantum computational advantages and the generation of large-scale cluster states with tens of thousands of modes, which have not been shown on any other platform to this date.

In recent years, these table-top quantum information processing (QIP) architectures have been transitioning to truly scalable integrated systems and benefiting from the advances in integration technologies that have enabled thousands of optical and electrical components within the same chip in classical computing and sensing applications.

This two-session symposium aims to bring together academic research groups and photonics-based quantum start-ups to discuss their QIP architectures, recent results, long-term goals and current challenges on both the theoretical and experimental fronts. The symposium also looks at applications of quantum photonics beyond computation such as communication, sensing and spectroscopy.
