Paper Abstract

For dynamically-reconfigurable wireless optical communication, quantum optical communication and interfacing, as well as quantum processing, we research integrated microelectronic and photonic solutions. We investigate fundamental paradigms and scalable technologies. Optical waveguides support interfacing, ultra-dense quadrature amplitude modulation, multiplexing and demultiplexing, quantum state mixing and conversion, switching, etc. The silicon nitride is nonlinear media which exhibit nonlinear electro-optical, magneto-optical, optical and quantum effects. To accomplish measurable and processable transductions on physical variables which realize processing schemes, we investigate integration and role of passive and active components, such as controlled lasers, quantum dots, photon detectors, etc. Our objective is to find engineering silicon photonics for quantum-enabled processing and communication. Information science, quantum mechanics and nonlinear optics paradigms are applied. Analytic and low-fidelity experimental studies are reported.
