Photonic Quantum Technologies

Photonic Quantum Technologies Group

Quantum technologies are of increasing importance for application in e.g. secured communications, enhanced computing as well as quantum-improved measurement techniques.

We specialize in the investigation and development of novel, scalable and compact photonic quantum systems based on fiber and integrated optical circuit technology. We work at the intersection of laser physics, nonlinear optics, quantum science and information processing with the aim to enable quantum technologies in real world scenarios.
