Scalable Two-Dimensional Quantum Integrated Photonics

Objective

S2QUIP will introduce a paradigm shift in the development of scalable cost-effective integrated-chip quantum light sources. Scalable quantum light sources are of significant importance for the future quantum photonics technology applications. Current technologies still lack on-chip scalability due to the cumbersome integration of quantum light sources (e.g. quantum dots or crystal defects) that require a high-quality bulk matrix environment to operate. Here, S2QUIP aims to utilize atomically flat two-dimensional (2D) layered semiconductors to provide maximum flexibility for incorporation of quantum light sources into scalable photonic chip architectures using surface processing instead of bulk processing. Single and entangled photons will be deterministically generated using 2D semiconductors and efficiently coupled to on-chip cavities and multiplexed using integrated waveguides, switches, and beam-splitters. This approach will allow the demonstration of useful entangled photon states in a deterministic and scalable fashion that far surpasses the state-of-the-art using bulk semiconductors and optics. S2QUIP’s ambitious goal is to achieve 20 multiplexed quantum light sources that can fulfill the long-awaited expectation of scalable on-chip quantum light sources for numerous quantum technologies (e.g., large-scale quantum computation, communication and sensing).
