Quantum walks of photons on a non-linear chip (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Quantum walks have attracted significant attention due to the possibility to propagate and reshape large-scale photon entanglement based on the superposition of possible photon paths. Entangling photons brings the promise of secure communication and ultra-fast quantum computing. Another phenomenon called optical nonlinearity allows interaction between electro-magnetic waves through matter. Bringing the concepts of quantum walks and optical nonlinearity together, and integrating them on a chip, opens a way to efficiently generate entangled photons and tune the entanglement. In this talk we will show the first experiments and theoretical studies featuring such tunable integrated sources.
