Stable transmission of polarization-entangled photons from a quantum dot over metropolitan network

Jan Huwer

Toshiba Research Europe Ltd

Jan Huwer is a research scientist in the quantum information group working at the Cambridge Research Laboratory of Toshiba Research Europe Ltd. Jan is working on the development of telecom wavelength quantum-light sources based on semiconductor quantum dots. Current focus of his work is the implementation of quantum communication applications using these devices. After having obtained a PhD in the area of quantum networking using single atoms, Jan is well experienced with quantum optics and has a great interest in quantum networks in general.


Quantum light sources based on single-photon emitters are a core technology, which is expected to enable a multitude of emerging quantum-photonic applications with superior performance. As the development of sources is... [ view full abstract ]
