Uncovering and harnessing quantum phenomena in materials that can leverage industrial semiconductor manufacturing is a long-sought-after strategy to create novel or superior quantum technologies for computing, communication, and sensing. With this perspective, this symposium will bring together a diverse set of scientific communities to present and discuss the progress, current challenges, and future opportunities in group IV quantum engineered materials for integrated quantum technologies. The symposium will cover the broad spectrum from fundamental materials and quantum science to engineering and industrial applications. The first part of the symposium will be dedicated to quantum systems based on group IV materials that are readily integrated on a Si wafer (Si, SiC, Ge, Sn, and their alloys) and their use as platforms to tailor and tune key quantum processes and particles (fermions, Majorana fermions, bosons, anyons, etc.). This includes two-dimensional electron and hole gases, quantum dots, quantum wires, metal-oxide-semiconductor structures, atomic- level doped semiconductors, topological insulators, hybrid superconductor-semiconductor systems, isotopically programmed semiconductors, defect-enabled optical emitters, and ultrasensitive micro- and nano-electromechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS). The key focus will be on the significant progress in materials to solve outstanding challenges in generating, controlling, and manipulating quantum states and quasi-particles. The second part of the symposium will target group IV-enabled quantum components such as qubits, single-photon emitters, single-photon detectors, quantum repeaters, quantum transducers, quantum LIDAR, gravitometers, nanoscale magnetic sensors, etc. Special sessions will be dedicated to focused topics on ultrasensitive metrology, theoretical modeling, quantum device packaging, and challenges in industry-compatible quantum manufacturing.
Abstracts will be solicited in the following areas: Scalable and CMOS-compatible quantum materials and devices; Group IV elements and alloys; Silicon- integrated quantum technologies; Qubits; Single-photon emitters; Single-photon detectors; Ultrasensitive MEMS and NEMS; Spin-photon interfaces; Quantum photonics; Quantum communication; Quantum computing; Quantum sensing.
