Abstract

In photonics, fundamental advances depend critically on continual improvements in device coupling, transmission losses, and material functionality. These requirements are especially critical in quantum photonics — the manipulation of quantum properties of light — where every photon is precious. A stunning example of how improved capabilities can facilitate basic discovery occurred in late 2015, when a few percent improvement in the efficiency of single-photon detectors enabled a definitive loophole-free demonstration of quantum nonlocality (1). On page 1176 of this issue, Reimer et al. (2) now show how a highly nonlinear optical glass can enable the on-chip generation of biphoton as well as multiphoton entangled qubits.
