In a recent collaboration spanning Bristol, Denmark, Austria, and China, we demonstrated the teleportation of quantum states of light across two millimetre-scale Silicon chips and the on-chip entanglement of four photons in a GHZ-entangled state. Together with the Huber group at IQOQI Vienna, our team developed efficient theoretical techniques for measuring the generated multi-photon entangled states. These results open the door towards CMOS-compatible quantum technology applications in networking and computation.
