To maximally utilize the potential of quantum states of light for advanced measurements and computation, integration in a chip-scale nanophotonic environment is required. In particular, the integration of single-photon sources with spectral filters and superconducting detectors on a single chip will enable dramatic new functionality and scalability. We are developing these systems utilizing silicon photonic devices with superconducting-nanowire single-photon detectors for applications in quantum information processing, loophole-free Bell measurements, and sources of quantum randomness.
