Title: Photonic integration for quantum technology


Breakthroughs in quantum science show a lot of promise for the fields of communications, computing and sensing. However, real-world manufacturable and scalable quantum technologies are still somewhat elusive. In this talk I will discuss the opportunities of mature integrated photonic technology platforms for their use as QPICs, quantum photonic integrated circuits.


Martijn Heck obtained his PhD from Eindhoven University of Technology, where he is currently a full professor in the Photonic Integration group and Scientific Director of the Eindhoven Hendrik Casimir Institute. He was a postdoc at VU Amsterdam and UC Santa Barbara, and Associate Professor at Aarhus University until 2020.
