From the active control of qubits to the realisation of large-scale quantum photonic circuits
Quantum entanglement, a phenomenon observed at the quantum level, could be used to instantly transfer data between chips. Current advances in photonic quantum technologies provide the fundamental tools for generating and manipulating photons within a chip. However, performing large-scale experiments which involve many quantum bits (qubits) remains challenging due to the lack of a method to incorporate and control many sources of identical photons in the same chip. The EU-funded NANOMEQ project will merge two flourishing research fields – optomechanics and deterministic photon-emitter interfaces – to actively control quantum circuits and realise large-scale nanomechanical quantum photonic circuits. If successful, project results will hit important milestones in quantum photonics and will pave the way for scaling up photon-emitter interfaces for advanced quantum information processing.
