Zusammensetzung des Moduls / Lehrformen

Lecture: 2 h per week

Exercise: 1 h per week


The lecture will cover a significant part of integrated quantum photonics, which is one of the pillars of the current quantum technology development. In particular, the lecture will cover the following topics
• Integrated optics on a single photon level
• Generation and manipulation of quantum states of light using integrated waveguides
• Overview over integrated photonic platforms and fabrication of passive and active waveguide structures
• Quantum walks in linear and non-linear waveguide lattices
• Introduction to photonic quantum computation and simulation
• Measurements using superconducting nanowire single photon detectors and transition edge sensors

Lern- und Qualifikationsziele

The course should provide the participating students with a profound knowledge on the state of the art of integrated optics used for the realization of quantum optical devices.

After active participation in the course, the students will be familiar with the basic concepts and phenomena of integrated quantum photonics and will be able to develop own concepts for integrated quantum circuitry.

The intended learning outcome is that the students are introduced to the basics on the field of integrated quantum optics and its applications.

Therefore, course starts with an overview on the generation of non-classical states of light with special attention on integrated solutions.

Afterwards several integrated photonic platforms will be discussed ranging from fabrication to performance and useability.

Based on that the on-chip manipulation of non-classical states of light will be discussed. This starts with the very general concept of quantum walks and continues towards quantum simulation. It ends with an introductory to photonic quantum computing with a clear focus on practical implementation of quantum photonic gate structures.

The course closes with the discussion on non-classical light detection in integrated photonics.
