Photonic Integration in general, and Quantum Photonic Integrated Circuits (QPICs) in particular, are considered as an enabler for quantum technology. Conversely, quantum technology is regarded as a major emerging market for photonic integration.
The Quantum Flagship and the Photonics21 ETP formed a joint Focus Group on the topic with the aim of making QPICs a European priority and setting up a European QPIC infrastructure in the longer term.
A position paper has been elaborated, about the required efforts in more detail, which is available for download now. This position paper will be used to build the basis for future cooperation of projects from both areas, better access to infrastructure and joint funding activities of both initiatives.
