The field of quantum optics offers powerful new ways to compute, communicate, and measure with quantum states. Enabled by recent advances in quantum control and nanofabrication, it is now becoming possible to realize scalable quantum technologies in semiconductor systems.


In this webinar presented by the OSA Photonic Detection Technical Group, Dr. Dirk Englund from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology will describe his recent work towards high-speed quantum key distribution using photonic integrated circuits, as well as scalable quantum information processors based on on-chip quantum networks. Dr. Englund will also briefly discuss waveguide-integrated graphene-based high-speed photodetectors.
