About this book

This book presents the basics and applications of superconducting devices in quantum optics. Over the past decade, superconducting devices have risen to prominence in the arena of quantum optics and quantum information processing. Superconducting detectors provide unparalleled performance for the detection of infrared photons in quantum cryptography, enable fundamental advances in quantum optics, and provide a direct route to on-chip optical quantum information processing. Superconducting circuits based on Josephson junctions provide a blueprint for scalable quantum information processing as well as opening up a new regime for quantum optics at microwave wavelengths.  The new field of quantum acoustics allows the state of a superconducting qubit to be transmitted as a phonon excitation.  This volume, edited by two leading researchers, provides a timely compilation of contributions from top groups worldwide across this dynamic field, anticipating future advances in this domain.

Reviews

“It provides an excellent overview of the present state of the art for postgraduate students and researchers entering the field. … Overall, this is a very timely work, which should be of interest to a wide range of researchers in quantum-optical technologies.” (Mark Fox, Optics & Photonics News, osa-opn-org, July, 2016)
