Quantum and Silicon Photonics Library for AIM photonics

Quantum computing (QC) is expected to deliver the next leap in information technology, with anticipated impacts as significant as the development of silicon integrated circuits and the Internet. Photonic QC provides the advantage of a scalable platform based on silicon manufacturing. Industry has recognized the potential of a purely photonic approach, as being pursued by Xanadu (Toronto, Canada) and PsiQuantum (California). However, photons don’t last long while travelling in silicon waveguides, meaning it is difficult to perform many quantum operations before the photons are lost.

Silicon photonics-based biosensor for multiplex detection

Our goal is to research, develop and commercialize an advanced biosensor that detects many different pathogen infections and immunity for diseases such as COVID-19. We are using a new sensor technology realized with semiconductor manufacturing technology (silicon photonics) and integrated optics and electronics. Our hope is that our sensors can provide answers to individuals, to industries, to governments, and to policy makers.
