Scalable Heralded Single-photon Sources

The single-photon source is the fundamental building block for quantum technologies in photonics, particularly for quantum computing.  Currently, no one can run more than a handful of such sources at a time, and their efficiency is limited.  In collaboration with the University of Oxford and Imperial College London, this project aims to tackle that problem.

The project will involve theoretical calculations, computer models, device specifications, and device fabrication in the cleanroom, leading to a broad base of skills upon completion.
