    Cooper pairs form spin singlet states and are regarded as entangled electron pairs. Extracting entangled electrons has been actively studied by the use of superconductor-normal metal junctions. We have proposed to convert Cooper pairs to entangled photon pairs via interband radiative recombination of Cooper pairs penetrated into a semiconductor by the proximity effect. We fabricated a superconduct... View full abstract»

    We present an optimized fabrication process for superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors that allowed us to obtain a yield of ~70% for detectors based on 80-nm-wide niobium nitride nanowires. We fabricated detectors that showed 24-ps timing jitter and saturated detection efficiency without the need for cryogenic amplifiers, allowing for operation in a low-bias low-dark-count-rate regime wh...

    In this paper, anomalous transmission properties in a finite photonic crystal made of a nearly ferroelectric superconductor, and a dielectric have been theoretically investigated. We show that, in the thickness domain, the transmission spectrum can be divided into two different regions: nonresonance and resonance. There are resonant transmission peaks in the resonance region, and the number of pea... View full abstract»

    The properties of omnidirectional band gap (OBG) in the two-dimensional superconductor photonic crystals (SPCs) with triangular lattices, that are composed of the superconductor (Nb) rods in the dielectric background, are theoretically studied in detail based on the modified plane wave expansion method, as the electromagnetic wave with a off-plane angle. The calculated results demonstrate that not... View full abstract»

    We report here recent work at the U.K. National Physical Laboratory on developing nanoscale SQUIDs using Dayem bridge Josephson junctions. The advantages are simplicity of fabrication, exceptional low-noise performance, toward the quantum limit, and a range of novel applications. Focused ion beam patterned Nb SQUID, possessing exceptionally low noise (~200 nΦ0/Hz1/2 ab... View full abstract»

    Recent improvements in materials growth and fabrication techniques may finally allow for superconducting semiconductors to realize their potential. Here, we build on a recent proposal to construct superconducting devices such as wires, Josephson junctions, and qubits inside and out-of single crystal silicon or germanium. Using atomistic fabrication techniques such as STM hydrogen lithography, heav... View full abstract»

    Quantum photonic integration is one of the leading approaches for enabling the implementation of quantum simulation and computing at the scale of tens to hundreds of photons. Quantum photonic integrated circuits require the monolithic integration of single-photon sources and passive circuit elements, such as waveguides and couplers, with single-photon detectors. A promising approach for on-chip si... View full abstract»
