Integrated Semiconductor Quantum Photonic Devices Incubator

Identify challenges, forge collaborative networks and generate funding and accessibility strategies

WASHINGTON – The Optical Society (OSA) will host an Integrated Semiconductor Quantum Photonic Devices Incubator meeting 18-20 June at OSA’s Washington, D.C. offices. This Incubator will combine the expertise of the leading researchers in the field of quantum-dot devices and integrated photonics to articulate the challenges and develop pathways that will lead to highly integrated quantum photonic circuits composed of sources, memories, and strong nonlinearities. 

The hosts hope to identify the critical remaining challenges in materials growth, device design, and systems integration, and define the best strategies to combine efficiency with the high coherence requirements needed for quantum technologies.
