Photonics plays an important role in quantum technologies using photons as quantum bits of information in this rapidly expanding field. Photonics is used for quantum communications such quantum key distribution but also for future quantum computers and simulators and will be used to link quantum networks towards a future quantum internet.
This one-day hands-on training course provides industry, especially those developing new products or addressing an application need, with a detailed overview of important quantum photonics devices and techniques.
The course will focus on three technology demonstrators; 1) how to generate single photons; 2) how to generate pairs of entangled photons; 3) how to use integrate optics for quantum photonics. Course attendees will learn how these devices are designed, fabricated and tested. They will also learn how what are the challenges for industry in the field of quantum photonics.
