Quantum photonics

Quantum photonics

In quantum photonics we produce, transmit, and detect single photons. The quantum descriptors of each photon change when measured so quantum science combined with photonics may be the key to the secure communication of information. In addition, we can carry out experiments using single photons that test fundamental concepts of quantum science. With our expertise in sources for generation of single photons, and our waveguide technology that enables these photons to be tightly controlled, we are well-positioned to carry out this research.

Our research activities in the exciting field of Quantum Photonics include:

  • Single photon sources
  • Quantum gates
  • Quantum logic
  • Single photon metrology
