Within the context of quantum information, scalability is one of the most challenging tasks. Since integrated technology aims to fulfill this requirement, in the last years the ability to realize integrated devices to be employed in quantum information protocols represented an intriguing issue. Among the various platforms adopted for quantum information experiments—such as atoms, ions, quantum dots, single photons—, the photonic implementation has seen an increasing manufacturing of devices realized by means of different fabrication techniques.
