Workshop on Scale-Up and Standardization for Photonic Quantum Technologies 2023

National Physical Laboratory, October 30th-31st, 2023

Bringing industry, academia, funders and metrology together to discuss challenges and opportunities around scale-up for photonic quantum technologies, including:

  • Existing Challenges
  • Standardized Measurements
  • Tooling Needs
  • Specifications for Quantum Photonics
  • Emerging Topics


The event is free for all attendees (limited spaces available), including refreshments. Limited travel funds may be available for those without access to funding.

The two half-day event will consist of single-track sessions of invited talks from UK semiconductor, photonics and quantum industry, academia and metrology speakers. We invite contributed posters, and a break-out discussion session will be held.

The workshop will run from mid-day Monday 30th October to mid-day Tuesday 31st October. Industry are welcome to present a stall during the poster session - please contact the organizers for details.
