AppQInfo – Applications and Hardware for Photonic Quantum Information Processing

Satellite Quantum Communication

Funded under the Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie Actions programme, the “AppQInfo” project No. 956071 will train early-stage researchers in state-of-the-art integrated quantum photonics, one of five critical key enabling technologies for Europe. Using photonic integrated circuits to control photonic quantum states, integrated photonics allows the generation, manipulation and readout of photonic quantum states in a highly controlled manner. It dramatically increases computation speed and efficiency compared to electronics circuits. Young researchers will work on 15 interdisciplinary projects that will focus on developing feasible long-distance quantum communications from urban-scale networks to satellite-based systems; studying quantum transport properties and quantum Fourier transforms in photonic circuits; building all-optical artificial neural networks and applying them for quantum simulations; and developing sources and detectors of multiphoton quantum states and polaritonic logic gates.
