Physicists at the Centre for Quantum Photonics, University of Bristol have had an article entitled 'Chip-to-chip quantum photonic interconnect by path-polarization interconversion' published in Optica.
Chip-to-chip quantum photonic interconnect by path-polarization interconversion' published in Optica.
The article provides details of the first quantum photonic interconnect, demonstrating high-fidelity entanglement distribution and manipulation between two separate photonic chips, implemented using state-of-the-art silicon photonics.
Their research which was completed in collaboration with collaborators at IFN, NICT and the University of Glasgow shows how this interconnect could be integral to creating large-scale quantum computing architectures and systems which will require quantum interconnects to enable scaling beyond the limits of a single wafer, and toward multi-chip systems.
The team hopes to look into making further improvements in loss, which will allow this quantum photonic interconnect to provide new levels of flexibility in quantum systems and architectures.

OSA webpage from today.
