Integrated Optical Platform

The Integrated Optical Platform Work Package, led by A.Prof. Mirko Lobino, focuses on integration and scalability for quantum optics. The goal of this work package is to realise the technological infrastructure for large scale integrated optical devices with a computational complexity to outperform current classical computers.

Using lithium niobate as main material platform we will design and fabricate electro-optically reconfigurable waveguide networks. With our technology we will work towards the realisation of devices for the generation of nonclassical state of light, such as single photons and squeezed vacuum, their manipulation, and detection all on a single chip.
