Photonics will play a central role in future quantum technology, offering the unique and indispensable capability to conserve quantum coherence over long distances and inter-connect different quantum systems. This talk will present our efforts in developing hybrid integrated photonic platforms, which enable the exploration of new quantum phenomena, the development of novel quantum information functions, and the improvement of quantum device performance.

Zoom information is listed on the Happenings at Michigan page. 


Linran Fan is an Assistant Professor in the Chandra Family Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin.

He received his B.S. in Physics from Peking University in 2011, and his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Yale University in 2017. He worked as a postdoc at the California Institute of Technology in 2018. He joined the Wyant College of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona as an assistant professor in August 2018. He joined the faculty of the Chandra Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin in August 2023.

His research interests focus on nonlinear interactions between optical photons, superconducting circuits, electron spins, and acoustic waves at the quantum level in a hybrid system of novel integrated devices and materials. Target applications include photonic information processing, communication, and precision measurement enhanced by quantum information science.
