Scalable Two-Dimensional Quantum Integrated Photonics, S2QUIP, will develop scalable cost-effective on-chip quantum photonic hybrid microsystems by integrating two-dimensional semiconductor materials (2DSMs) in state-of-the-art CMOS compatible nanophotonic circuits. S2QUIP will take advantage of the recent emergence of 2DSMs to achieve an efficient and coherent spin-photon interface incorporated into complex on-chip quantum photonic circuits resulting in portable, low-power consumption and market-scalable quantum photonics technologies. The use of 2DSMs provides extraordinary advantages over traditional semiconductor materials previously employed, due to their atomically-flat nature and intrinsic physical properties. Single photon generation in visible wavelengths has recently been demonstrated with 2DSMs, paving the way for S2QUIP to generate entangled photon states at record rates that will unlock new quantum technologies.
The S2QUIP project has received founding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 820423.
