Quantum Technology Seminar

14 January 2016, 4.00 PM - 14 January 2016, 5.00 PM

Prof. Jeremy O'Brien, University of Bristol

Pugsley Lecture Theatre, Faculty of Engineering, Queen's Building, University Walk.

Of the various approaches to quantum computing, photons are appealing for their low-noise properties and ease of manipulation at the single photon level; while the challenge of entangling interactions between photons can be met via measurement induced non-linearities.

However, the real excitement with this architecture is the promise of ultimate manufacturability: All of the components---inc. sources, detectors, filters, switches, delay lines---have been implemented on chip, and increasingly sophisticated integration of these components is being achieved.

This seminar will discuss the opportunities and challenges of a fully integrated photonic quantum computer.
