High performance spectral filtering for quantum applications
On: Mar 07, 2023
In: Quantum Communications
Quantum science is a century-old field of study, but recent technological advancements led to the enablement of new techniques to tap into the endless potential of quantum mechanical properties expressed at the single particle level.
One can now exploit the quantum superposition and quantum entanglement principles to setup un-hackable communication links, to detect infinitesimal force shifts, or to solve complex problems that outweigh previous supercomputers. This requires controlling single atoms/ions, electrons and photons with high finesse so that nothing interferes with the desired process
High quality optics is key in addressing this challenge, starting with the generation of “pure” photons with:
• An extremely well-defined spectral profile
• Minimal noise
• High isolation from initially co-generated signals
• Minimal pulse distortion
This calls for tailored solutions.
• Quantum Key Distribution
• Atomic Clocks
• Quantum Computing
• Quantum Sensing
• Fundamental Research
• Single-photon Sources
• Entangled Photons
• Optical Tweezers
• Cold Atoms/Ion Traps
• Diamond Defects
Objectives & Examples
TeraXion’s optical filters rely on Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) technology, renown for enabling narrow bandwidths and high isolation in a practical and rugged format.
To these intrinsic advantages, TeraXion adds 20 years of optimizing design parameters and refining manufacturing skills to achieve unique features the most challenging applications require.
Finally, the TFN tunable platform confers the benefits of an ultimate precision on the band position and an easy integration into commercial products.
