Integrated Quantum Hybrid Systems (Hardcover)
About this item
Integrated quantum hybrid devices, built from classical dielectric nano-structures and individual quantum systems, promise to provide a scaleable platform to study and exploit the laws of quantum physics. On the one hand there are novel applications, such as efficient computation, secure communication, and measurements with unreached accuracy. On the other hand hybrid devices might serve to explore the limits of our understanding of the physical world, i.e. the formalism of quantum mechanics. Thus, optical quantum hybrid systems got into the focus of many researchers worldwide.
Addressing young graduate students, this book gives a comprehensive introduction into this exciting and fast-growing field. After introducing the theoretical and experimental fundamentals, the book presents several recent results and discusses new proposals for further studies. The book outlines the way for more complex devices and to realize schemes to entangle distant quantum systems on-chip.
