The draft position paper on Quantum PICs is available for download.
Photonic Integration in general, and Quantum Photonic Integrated Circuits (QPICs) in particular, are considered as an enabler for quantum technology. Conversely, quantum technology is regarded as a major emerging market for photonic integration.
In order to profit from the Quantum Flagship and the Photonics21 ETP, actively supporting these fields in Europe, joint efforts are needed to gain technological leadership and stimulate job creation. In this context, a joint Focus Group from both initiatives has been formed with the general goals of making Quantum Integrated Photonic Circuits a European priority and setting up a European QPIC infrastructure in the longer term.
The Focus Group has elaborated a draft of the position paper, about the required efforts in more detail, and is available for download now. This document will be used to build the basis for future cooperation of projects from both areas, better access to infrastructure and joint funding activities of both initiatives.
The group welcomes any feedback about the draft. Details within the document!
