    Title: Integrated photonics for high-performance quantum sources and detectors

    Abstract:

    Integrated photonics can greatly reduce the size, weight and power (SWaP) of optical assemblies, and also improve functionality and utility of quantum photonic sources and detectors, which may, in turn, benefit large-scale deployment and adoption of quantum technology.

    We report on good performance in entangled photon-pair and heralded single-photon generation using spontaneous four-wave mixing (SFWM) in silicon photonic micro-resonators, and using spontaneous parametric down-conversion (SPDC) in periodically-poled thin-film lithium niobate waveguides. Using superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors, we demonstrated capture of ultra-high bandwidth (>100 GHz) optical modulated signals at ultra-low received average power (below -100 dBm), a new milestone in optical oscilloscopy.

    Title: Securing Communications with Quantum Networks

    Abstract:

    We live in an era where everyone is constantly connected via the internet. The way we work, play, socialise and perform transactions can no longer be dissociated with our smartphones. This is possible only because we could communicate securely over the virtual world, keeping our sensitive information away from prying eyes. However, quantum computers could break our current encryption scheme, completely disrupting our way of life in the current digital age. Fortunately, quantum theory also provides a means of encrypting unconditionally secure messages. In this talk, the art and science of quantum cryptography will be introduced. Our vision of connecting people securely via quantum links in the upcoming quantum internet will also be shared.
