InteQuant Project in Europe to Create Photonic Hardware for Quantum Communications

By IQT News posted 11 Feb 2020

(LaserFocusWorld) The Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering (IOF; Jena, Germany) and the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI; Vienna, Austria) are cooperating on a project called “InteQuant — Joint Initiative for Advanced Integrated Devices for Quantum Information Processing. Funding for InteQuant is 2.3 million euros (Fraunhofer 1.3 million euros / ÖAW 1.0 million euros), while the term of the project is three years.
The goal is to develop the missing hardware to make quantum communications ready for practical use. For a quantum internet with new applications, transmission rates for quantum-key exchange must be substantially increased and the photonic structures miniaturized.
