The August 2019 edition of Photonics Spectra features an article co-authored by Chromacity’s Christopher Leburn and members of the Ultrafast Nonlinear Optics (UNO) and Extreme Light groups at the University of Glasgow. The article details recent collaborative work to generate visible entangled photons from one of our ultrafast laser sources.
The use of entangled photons in the visible spectrum is attractive because it requires a relatively small investment for detectors. We have been exploring the development of entangled photon sources at shorter wavelengths in the visible region.
To accelerate this development, we partnered with academics at the University of Glasgow, where there is a strong drive to push quantum technologies at the fundamental research level. The Photonics Spectra article highlights the results of that collaboration.
