Microwave-to-optical converters represent an indispensable component for quantum networks. Integrating photonics with superconductors is challenging because optical excitations lead to excess microwave noise. We demonstrate efficient microwave-to-optical conversion with integrated electro-optic devices at milliKelvin temperatures. Our device operates near its quantum ground state and meanwhile offers high conversion efficiency.

Hong Tang is the Llewellyn West Jones, Jr. Professor of Electrical Engineering, Physics and Applied Physics at Yale University. His research utilizes integrated photonic circuits to study photon-photon, photon-mechanics and photon-spin interactions as well as quantum photonics involving microwave and optical photons. He has been on Yale faculty since 2006. He is a recipient of Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering.
