Integrated quantum photonics (2006–2011)

The key physical technological advances of this century will be due to quantum technologies which exploit the unique properties of entanglement, a phenomenon with no everyday analogue. Understanding and applying entanglement is one of the great challenges in Physics, as is finding an experimental path to large-scale devices. This Fellowship will launch a major new initiative to address these challenges by developing optical quantum technology that integrates many photons to form powerful quantum devices. This exploits the key recent demonstration of few-particle entangling devices. By providing a route for industrialisation, this project will extend Australia¿s early lead in quantum technology so as to maximise the benefits to Australia.
