Welcome to the Errando-Herranz Lab. We envision quantum technology that can be fabricated with the same processes that make the chips in your smartphone, and that operates in the same optical fibers as the internet.

Quantum technologies promise to better our lives via drastic improvements in tasks such as optimization and factoring, cryptography, and the development of new chemicals and materials. These applications require quantum technologies with a very high complexity, but today’s technologies fall short on scalability. A leading technology is based on optical entanglement of quantum memories in the solid state. This requires exquisite control of light and matter in the atomic scale in systems scalable to thousands of qubits.

In our lab, we aim to achieve this goal by developing large-scale quantum photonic integrated circuits based on the same processes that make the chips in your smartphone, and spin quantum memories in silicon operating at the same optical wavelength as the internet.

Carlos is an assistant professor in the Quantum and Computer Engineering Division at EEMCS, and a principal investigator at QuTech. Carlos received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain (UPV, 2013), and his PhD degree in Micro and Nanosystems from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden, in 2018. After a postdoctoral stay at the Quantum Nano Photonics group at KTH, he went on to MIT as a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow, where he worked in the Quantum Photonics group. His research interests are quantum photonics, integrated photonics, and color centers.
