IQP - 9th Optoelectronics and Photonics Winter School: Integrated Quantum Photonics


This school aims at introducing students and post-docs with an optics background to the concepts of integrated quantum photonics. We will start from the general concepts of quantum optics, quantum information, quantum simulation and computing and we will move to the main building blocks of an integrated photonic quantum circuits (single photon sources, entangled photon sources, single photon detectors,  linear optical devices, quantum interference devices, and materials and processing to manufacture integrated quantum devices). Then we will discuss integrated quantum circuits and their applications in security, communication, computing, sensing-measurements and quantum key distribution. The lectures will be presented by the main scientists who have pioneered this photonic technology.

In addition to standard classes, laboratory sessions will be organized to facilitate the development of a proper design of integrated circuits on the student request. Rump evening sessions on hot topics in the field will be organized to facilitate discussions among students and lecturers. Since this is a residential school, both the students and the lecturers will reside in the same place which will make easy discussions in an informal venue or on the ski fields.

Poster Session

During the school, a poster session to stimulate discussions and networking will be held. The description of current activity of the students is encouraged. While it is mandatory to submit an abstract at the registration time, it will not undergo any review process and will be accepted as it is. The abstract should contain a Title, Author(s) list and Affiliation and the text of max 250 words.
