Event Description: 

RIT is sponsoring a Photonics for Quantum (PfQ) in recognition of the potential for using photons in Quantum 2.0 technologies. The purpose of the workshop is to explore how photonic devices may impact quantum applications. It capitalizes on recent advancements in integrated silicon photonics manufacturing, especially by the development of capabilities at AIM Photonics in the United States and other facilities around the world. PfQ is particularly timely, given the large financial investments already made in quantum technology development and those that are anticipated through the National Quantum Initiative in the United States. The workshop features international pioneers in the advancement of photonics for quantum devices and in their use in five applications: computing, communication, imaging, sensing, and clocks. The new quantum revolution will create whole new job categories, such as "quantum engineer." In anticipation of associated workforce development opportunities, we are planning to have talks, a panel, and on-site resources to connect quantum job employers with potential job candidates.
