attojoule Cryogenic Communication

Project description

Optical fibre links to cryostats can boost computing power and energy efficiency

All envisaged practical implementations of cryogenic processors, including both quantum computers (QCs) and classical processors based on single flux quantum (SFQ) signals, require massive data transfer from and to classical high performance computers (HPCs). The EU-funded aCryComm project aims to develop building blocks for cryogenic photonics interconnects and eventually enable this challenging data transfer. The long-term goal is the development of an open-access platform to integrate classical optical interfaces based on low-loss silicon photonics, plasmonics, and nano light sources together with superconducting photonic and electronic devices, including SFQ-based co-processors for HPCs and for QCs.
