The recent development of chip-scale integrated quantum photonic circuits has radically changed the way in which quantum optic experiments are performed, and provides a means to deliver complex and compact quantum photonic technologies for applications in quantum communications, sensing, and computation. Silicon photonics is a promising material system for the delivery of a fully integrated and large-scale quantum photonic technology platform, where all key components could be monolithically integrated into single quantum devices. In this chapter, we provide an overview of the field silicon quantum photonics, presenting the latest developments in the generation, manipulation, and detection of quantum states of light key on-chip functions that form the basic building blocks of future quantum information processing and communication technologies.
