UNIQORN is a European consortium of academic organizations, industry-oriented research institutesresearch institutes, and businesses developing quantum communications devices. UNIQORN's goal is to extend existing photonic technology to accommodate quantum communications by integrating complex systems, which are presently found on meter-size breadboards, into millimeter-size chips. This research will result in field trials demonstrating the readiness of the technology.

UNIQORN aims to develop key components for quantum communication systems such as true random number generation and secure-key distribution. This includes specialized optical sources and detector technology realized on mainstream fabriationfabrication platforms. To produce minaturizedminiaturized quantum-optic systems that utiliseutilize quantum mechanical features such as entanglement and light squeezing requires system-on-chip integration.
