Project: Quantum-safe communication based on Photonic Integrated Circuits

Acronym QuPIC (Reference Number: 11493)
Duration 01/10/2017 - 01/10/2020
Project Topic QuPIC aims at developing fully-integrated photonic Transmitters and Receivers for a Quantum Key Distribution platform (Integrated Photonic QKD Platform). Existing QKD systems are bulky and based on discrete components, limiting their applications in large telecom infrastructure. As a building block for a complete QKD infrastructure, an Integrated Photonic QKD Platform will enable: significant size and cost reductions; simplify calibration, and facilitate scalability & network implementation.
