Abstract

Quantum optics experiments are increasingly taking an integrated format for the benefits of phase stability and scalability. Silica has proved an advantageous material for this work due to its low propagation loss and high-efficiency coupling to optical fibre, and a number of key on-chip experiments have already been carried out with up to four photons using this material [1]. Fabrication imperfections create a number of difficulties in moving to more complex setups since the classical performance of the network must be characterised before an analysis of its quantum properties can be carried out, and this process becomes greatly more challenging as the circuit complexity grows.
