Single-Photon Light Sources for Quantum Technologies

Project description

World-first single-photon source paves the way for practical quantum technologies

Solid-state deterministic single-photon sources are expected to become the building blocks of future quantum technologies spanning from quantum communication and computing to quantum simulations, sensing and metrology. Denmark-based company Sparrow Quantum has recently introduced the world’s first single-photon chip onto the market. The new quantum chip emits high fidelity single photons with excellent quantum features. The technology builds on world-leading in-house expertise in quantum optics and nanofabrication. The aim of the EU-funded QTOOL project is to fine-tune the technology and demonstrate a set of key single-photon products. These will enable researchers active in photonic quantum technologies to conduct research faster, cheaper and more efficiently to facilitate new technologies and components.
