Call for
Optics and photonics enable devices that exploit the laws of quantum physics at a fundamental level, laying the ground for a second quantum revolution. Light is widely used in emerging quantum technologies, for example to control and manipulate quantum states of matter, to generate and transmit qubits, to achieve quantum nonlinearities and many-body effects. In addition, advances in nanofabrication and circuit integration (e.g. silicon photonics, fiber optics, plasmonics) are crucial to translate proof of concepts into technological platforms for quantum simulations, metrology, sensing, imaging, communication and computing.

Quantum nanophotonic materials, devices, and systems aims at establishing a multidisciplinary forum for physicists, material scientists, and optical engineers to discuss the current progress, challenges, and future directions of the burgeoning field of quantum nanophotonics. Contributions are solicited in areas focusing on:

Material platforms for quantum photonic devices
  • wide bandgap materials: diamond, silicon carbide, rare earths
  • semiconductors: silicon, III-V and II-V compounds
  • two-dimensional materials: graphene, boron-nitride, transition metal dicalcogenides
  • plasmonics, metamaterials and metasurfaces
  • nanoantennas
  • topological materials.
Quantum photonic devices for simulations, metrology, sensing, imaging, communication and computing
  • nanoscale atom traps
  • single-photon sources and modulators
  • single-photon and photon-number discriminating detectors
  • spin-photon interfaces for sensors and repeaters
  • quantum gates
  • optomechanical devices
  • quantum chemistry.
Quantum nanophotonic systems
  • quantum key distribution and quantum random number generators
  • quantum computers and simulators
  • quantum sensors based on solid-state systems and atom chips
  • quantum engineering, including nanofabrication and integration
  • quantum control, including error correction and tolerance
  • quantum entanglement and imaging.
