We propose to forge a partnership between the leading European groups working on the next generation of solid state quantum emitters based on novel growth methods such as Droplet Epitaxy. Future, practical Nano-photonics and Quantum Circuits applications demand semiconductor quantum dots that can be grown on substrates with different lattice parameters (Si, Ge, GaAs), different substrate orientations (such as (001) and (111)) and tuneable optical, electrical and spin properties.

Quantum flagship - online consultation on the QUTE consensus paper and registration for the Flagship workshop


A Community consulation has been launched with respect to the Quantum Flagship - the input will be presented to the High Level Steering Committee during an open workshop on the 10th of November in Berlin.

The High Level Steering Committee (http://qurope.eu/db/news/expert-group-quantum-technology-flagship) initiated a consultation process in order to collect the community consensus about the possible structure and governance of the QT Flagship.

During the first HLSC meeting, on the 20th September, T. Calarco presented the following documents:

CNR - IFN, Integrated Quantum Photonics

Research Type: 

We use light to fabricate and characterize integrated quantum photonic components. In particular, we use femtosecond laser pulses to produce photonic circuits in transparent materials, as glasses and crystals, for quantum applications. Recent work focussed on the development of photonic circuits in glass for the manipulation of single photons, in crystal for the demonstration of quantum memories and in diamond for a photonic interface with color-center defects. We use ultrafast laser pulses for the characterization of single photon sources based on 2D materials.
