Material platforms for Photonic integrated circuits (PIC) enable LiDAR, quantum and neuromorphic computing

A photonic integrated circuit (PIC) or integrated optical circuit is a device that integrates multiple (at least two) photonic functions and as such is similar to an electronic integrated circuit. The major difference between the two is that a photonic integrated circuit provides functions for information signals imposed on optical …

High speed, on demand Single photon source or emitter (SPE) is critical technology for secure communications systems, quantum computers and quantum sensors

Quantum cryptography is a hardware-based approach, which uses the properties of quantum mechanics such as quantum entanglement, and the no-cloning theory to secure data. Quantum cryptography solves the problem of key distribution by allowing the exchange of a cryptographic key between two remote parties with absolute security, guaranteed by the fundamental …

Single photon detector (SPD) critical technology for quantum computers and communications, and submarine detection

The process of detecting light—whether with our eyes, cameras or other devices—is at the heart of a wide range of civilian and military applications, including light or laser detection and ranging (LIDAR or LADAR), photography, astronomy, quantum information processing, medical imaging, microscopy and communications. Light is also being used in …

Optical Science and Engineering

Optics is the branch of physics that studies the behaviour and properties of light, including its interactions with matter and the construction of instruments that use or detect it. Optics usually describes the behaviour of visible, ultraviolet, and infrared light. Because light is an electromagnetic wave, other forms of electromagnetic …
