Optical microdevices for telecom scalable quantum platforms

Speaker: Evan Miyazono , Faraon Group
Location: East Bridge 114

Abstract: As quantum engineering plays an expanding role in experimental quantum information processing, the need arises for scalable integration of long-lived quantum bits.  In this seminar I will begin by briefly motivating the use of rare-earth dopants in solid-state host crystals as a platform for optically addressable quantum bits.  I will highlight the useful properties of erbium that make it the rare-earth element of choice for certain practical applications.  After motivating the need for microdevices to provide scalable coupling to multiple qubits, I will describing the progress developing two types of microdevices and their prospects in circumventing the difficulties in implementing erbium-based qubits, which arise from certain optical properties of the erbium dopant system.
