The Quantum Photonic Devices laboratory at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) is focused on advancing quantum information science and technologies through the development of novel quantum light sources and solid-state quantum devices. The researchers also test fundamental questions in quantum photonics.
The group aims to:
- Realize a quantum repeater - a quantum device that extends the distance for transferring quantum information than what is currently possible
- Perform quantum optics and algorithms on a semiconductor chip
- Realize an efficient interface between stationary and flying quantum bits, an important milestone towards the Quantum Internet
- Develop a `plug and play’, tunable quantum light source - an essential component needed in advanced quantum information schemes.
