The National Science Foundation announced a nearly $750,000 award to the University of New Mexico over three years for a project titled Integrated silicon photonics platforms for scalable quantum systems. The team includes Lead PI Marek Osinski, co-PIs Arash Mafi and Ganesh Balakrishnan (EECE).

“This is a highly interdisciplinary project that brings together expertise in materials science and engineering; semiconductor fabrication, processing, and devices; superconducting device physics; classical nonlinear and quantum optics; and optical communications to solve technical challenges for the development and realization of a scalable integrated quantum communication platform,” said Osinski.
