This project seeks to establish the foundations for developing a quantum NODE (Quantum Network Operational Device rEceiver) Architecture, using silicon-based waveguide circuits with integrated superconducting nanowire single photon detectors (SNSPDs). This new node-based network architecture will dramatically reduce the resources required for secure quantum communication networks, relieving the users from the need to have bulky and costly high performing detectors, and concentrating these expensive resources into a single central location. Integrated photonics approaches will be utilised to significantly reduce the technology footprint, whilst simultaneously enabling scaling.
