Semiconductor quantum science and technology is exploring the exciting and emerging prospects of integrating quantum functionality on semiconductor platforms to convert current information technology into quantum information technology. The past twenty years have led to incredible advances in this field. This book brings together the leading scientists who present the main achievements and challenges by reviewing and motivating the state-of-the-art at a tutorial level. The key challenges include creating quantum-light sources, quantum information processing via strong light-matter interaction, discovering new quantum materials as well as quasiparticles, and determining new quantum spectroscopic methodologies for superior control of quantum phenomena. As an important step, integration of these solutions on a semiconductor chip is discussed, and outlook for the future of semiconductor quantum science and technology is given.

About the Serial Volume Editors

Steven Cundiff

Steven Cundiff is also a professor at the University of Michigan. He works on experimental ultrafast optics with an emphasis on coherent spectroscopy and frequency combs. His spectroscopic studies have focused on semiconductors, semiconductor nanostructures, and recently 2D materials. He has also studied atomic vapors including collective effects that have analogies in semiconductors. He did pioneering work on femtosecond frequency combs, and recently demonstrated multidimensional coherent spectroscopy using combs. He is coauthor on over 250 paper in refereed journals and books.
