Building blocks for large-scale classical and quantum photonics

Carlos Errando Herranz will give his research presentation for Assistant Professor within the ICT Area of Advance. Welcome!​

WHO: Carlos Errando Herranz

WHEN: 13 May, 10:00-11:00

WHERE: Fasrummet (A820), MC2 Building​ (Entrance from Kemivägen 9. Take stairs A. Go to floor 8)

Large-scale classical and quantum photonics promise miniaturized, efficient, and cost-effective optical systems the size of a fingertip, with a wealth of applications in communications, machine learning, sensing, and computing. However, the scalability of current integrated photonic systems is severely limited by the power consumption of their reconfigurable elements and the integration of sources and detectors. 
In this talk, I will describe our recent results towards scalable classical and quantum photonics. My talk will focus on:

  1. scalable reconfigurable photonics enabled by MEMS [1], 
  2. their integration with superconducting single-photon detectors on the same chip [2], and 
  3. waveguide-integrated single-photon sources in silicon at telecommunication wavelengths [3].

Carlos Errando Herranz received his Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain (UPV, 2013), and his PhD degree in Micro and Nanosystems from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden (2018). 
After a postdoctoral stay at the Quantum Nano Photonics group (KTH), he is currently a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow at the Quantum Photonics group at MIT. 
Awards include the Swedish Research council and Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships, the Best Student Paper Award at the MEMS 2015 conference and a Best Master Thesis award. 
His research interests are quantum photonics, integrated photonics, and MEMS.
