On silicon chip quantum optics for quantum computing and secure communications (siquro)

SIQURO aims at bringing the quantum world into integrated photonics by using the silicon platform and, therefore, permitting in a natural way the integration of quantum photonics with electronics. In this way, by using the same successful paradigm of microelectronics, the vision is to have low cost and mass manufacturable integrated quantum photonic circuits for a variety of different applications in quantum computing, secure communications and services. This will be achieved on one side by engineering the optical properties of silicon by using nanotechnology and material sciences and on the other side by developing suitable quantum theories to predict the properties of photons in such a specific systems.
