A fundamental challenge of the quantum revolution is to efficiently interface the quantum computing systems operating at cryogenic temperatures with room temperature electronics and media for high data-rate communication. Current approaches to control and readout of such cryogenic computing systems use electrical cables, which prevent scalability due to their large size, heat conduction, and limited bandwidth1. A more viable approach is to use optical fibers which allow high-capacity… 


An integrated optical modulator operating at cryogenic temperatures
Electro-optic switching and modulation from room temperature down to 4 K is demonstrated by using the Pockels effect in integrated barium titanate (BaTiO3) devices, removing major roadblocks for the realization of cryogenic-compatible systems in the field of quantum computing, supercomputing and sensing.
