Available student project - Developing a planar waveguide photonic quantum processor

Research fields

  • Photonics, Lasers and Nonlinear Optics
  • Quantum Science and Technology
Integrated quantum photonic processor

Project details

Critical devices for quantum computing and communications can be implemented through the transfer of quantum information on light fields to and from rare-earth doped crystals. The rare-earth ions provide a platform for long-term storage of quantum information and non-linear interactions whilst the light provides the ideal means of transmitting quantum information and performing linear operations. This project aims to develop a photonic quantum processor based on a planar waveguide architecture incorporating rare-earth doped crystals. The processor with integrate quantum sources, memories modulators and detectors all onto the one chip.

Although primarily a PhD project, honours and undergraduate projects developing aspects of this experiment are also available.
