Abstract:

This report discusses research conducted under the in-house AFRLRI project Quantum Computing from FY16-FY18. In the sections below we discuss i the use of Aluminum Nitride AIN as a universal platform for quantum photonic integrated circuits QPIC, ii theory and device characterization of a QPIC Quantum Photonic Processor QPP, iii the important practical issue of Quantum Frequency Conversion, iv a Dual Mach Zehnder Interferometer capable of separating out the driving pump from the generated entangled photon pairs, v a detailed theoretical and experimental investigation of Spontaneous Parametric Down Conversion for entangled photon generation, vi a theoretical investigation of nonlinear optical processes in waveguide micro-ring resonators and vii an analysis of quantum algorithms conducted on the DWAVE quantum annealing machine.
