Josh Nunn

Co-Founder ORCA Photonics

Dr Josh Nunn is one of the leading experts in quantum memories and their applications to photonics quantum computing. After obtaining his PhD in 2009, Josh stayed on at the University of Oxford’s Clarendon Laboratory as a departmental lecturer and then as a Royal Society University Research Fellow working on light-matter interactions. In 2017 he was appointed Reader in Photonics at the Centre for Photonics and Photonic Materials at the University of Bath where he is developing protocols for light storage based on Kerr interactions in warm vapours and Brillouin scattering in diamond. He currently leads the Photonics Workpackage for the EPSRC Networked Quantum Information Technologies Hub. Josh is co-founder of Veriqloud, a start-up developing quantum network applications, and more recently he co-founded ORCA Photonics, a new quantum computing company building a scalable and flexible quantum computer powered by photonics.

Conference Day Two: September 11, 2019

Wednesday, September 11th, 2019

1:35 PM ORCA Photonics

Quantum computing promises new capabilities in design and optimisation, from therapeutic molecules to global communications networks. But achieving large scale machines will necessitate an architecture that is modular and highly connected. ORCA Photonics is a new quantum computing venture focussed on building such modular and connected systems using a suite of recently developed techniques in quantum optics and coherent light-matter interactions. I will describe how quantum memories can be combined with parametric wave mixing to enable deterministic photonic logic, and also entangling operations between atomic and solid-state qubits.
