Creation of Superconducting Photonics and Its Applications

Research Project Outline

Electron Cooper pairs show enhanced oscillator strengths due to their large coherent volumes, which originate from bosonic natures. Population of holes in the valence band of a quantum dot is regulated by the Pauli's exclusion principle on fermions. This project pursues the realization of diode sources generating single entangled photon pairs on demand by the combination of the different quantum particles in a quantum dot. This will open new interdisciplinary area between superconductors and photonics for the applications to quantum information processing.
