Application: Optical waveguide, quantum computing device, and method for manufacturing optical waveguide (Patent ID: US20240094459A1)

The patent filed by Fujitsu Ltd. describes an optical waveguide comprising a diamond layer with complex defects, first and second clad layers with specific refractive indices, and a metal layer in Schottky contact with the second clad layer. The second clad layer includes a polarity and spontaneous polarization, while the metal layer contains Au, Cu, or Ag and is less than 10 nm thick. The waveguide is designed for quantum computing applications and can be manufactured by forming the diamond layer, clad layers, and metal layer in a specific sequence.

The optical waveguide's unique design allows for efficient transmission of light signals for quantum computing devices. The inclusion of complex defects in the diamond layer, along with specific refractive indices and polarization properties of the clad layers, ensures optimal performance. The method of manufacturing the waveguide involves precise formation of each layer to achieve the desired structure. Overall, the patent outlines a novel approach to optical waveguide design tailored for quantum computing applications, with potential implications for the advancement of quantum technologies.
