Laser & Photonics Reviews’ cover highlights LPMC

The article "Hybrid photonic circuit for multiplexed heralded single photons", written by LPMC physicists in collaboration with two australian laboratories from Centre for Ultrahigh bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS) (MQ Photonics Research Centre et Institute of Photonics and Optical Science), is honored by illustrating the back cover of Laser & Photonics Reviews.

Abstract of the article :

A key resource for quantum optics experiments is an on-demand source of single and multiple photon states at telecommunication wavelengths. This letter presents a heralded single photon source based on a hybrid technology approach, combining high efficiency periodically poled lithium niobate waveguides, low-loss laser inscribed circuits, and fast (>1 MHz) fibre coupled electro-optic switches. Hybrid interfacing different platforms is a promising route to exploiting the advantages of existing technology and has permitted the demonstration of the multiplexing of four identical sources of single photons to one output. Since this is an integrated technology, it provides scalability and can immediately leverage any improvements in transmission, detection and photon production efficiencies.
