Memory Technologies

The ability to store optical quantum information underpins important operations in quantum information science. The Memory Technologies research will develop ultra-long memories with applications in processors and networks. Beyond these storage and release memories, the research will develop in-memory quantum operations and processing protocols. The key to developing an effective memory for optical quantum states is to efficiently and noiselessly interface qubits with long-lived atomic coherences. CQC2T has a world leading dual-approach capability when it comes to this goal with the demonstration of both the highest efficiency quantum memory and the longest measured spin coherences.

Integrated Quantum Photonics Program

Scalability and integration are key factors for the realisation of practical quantum technologies. The Integrated Quantum Photonics Program, led by A.Prof. Mirko Lobino from Griffith University, will develop these concepts in quantum optics by realising…

Spinwave Engineering for Active Quantum Memories Program

Many significant goals in optical quantum information systems rely on being able to store and release photons on demand.  In other words, we need a quantum memory for photonic qubits.  One way to do this…

Rare-Earth Integration Program

Critical operations in quantum computing and communications require quantum information to be transferred between light fields and material quantum systems. To enable these operations this program is developing a series of optical solid-state interface devices,…
