Programmable 8x8 linear optical network based on silicon nitride waveguides for quantum information processing

Tom A. W. Wolterink

University of Oxford

Tom Wolterink is a postdoctoral research assistant in the Ultrafast Quantum Optics group at the University of Oxford, led by Prof Ian Walmsley. He holds an MSc in Applied Physics and a PhD from the University of Twente, and his areas of expertise are quantum optics, integrated optics, nonlinear optics, and disordered photonic media. His current research is focused on photonic implementations of quantum simulation protocols.


On-chip universal linear optical networks based on tunable beam splitters and phase shifters are well suited for quantum information processing (QIP) due to their phase stability and reconfigurability. Many examples and... [ view full abstract ]
