Abstract

This talk proposes the use of Silicon Photonics as a platform to integrate classical as well as quantum photonics. Silicon Photonics is the technology to fabricate photonics devices with standard silicon microelectronics processing. Few examples will be demonstrated: an heavily integrated transponder aggregator based on optical switches for application in telecom networks and data centers, a compact biosensor for screening toxins which is fully functional and allows on field testing of milk, a chip size quantum random number generator for secure quantum communication, and an integrated source of entangled photons based on nonlinear optical effects in microring resonators.
