The realization of scalable, real world devices in quantum technologies and devices requires myriad new approaches and hardware components. Integrated photonics play a crucial role in many of the key applications in quantum information and quantum sensing, enabling the realization of key components such as new light sources, waveguides, resonators, and detectors. The field of Integrated Quantum Photonics is booming, and an increasing number of research groups are contributing to the accelerating efforts to study fundamental and technological challenges at the intersection of quantum optics, nanophotonics, and hybrid integrated devices. This Special Topic collection is dedicated to highlighting important progress in the field of Integrated Quantum Photonics and presenting new cutting-edge results, both experimental and theoretical, towards the common goal of exploring quantum photonic phenomena.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Nonlinear quantum photonics
- Solid state quantum light sources – quantum dots, color centres, molecules
- Integrated quantum circuits
- Emerging material platforms – e.g. lithium niobate, diamond, silicon carbide etc
- Atomically thin materials – TMDCs, hBN for quantum photonic devices
- Silicon photonics quantum computing
- Topological protection of quantum states
- Integrated quantum sensors
- On-chip single photon detection
- Quantum plasmonics
- Hybrid quantum systems
- Integrated platforms for squeezing
