1. A photonic integrated circuit comprising:
a substrate;
a first array of waveguides integrated with the substrate; and
a solid-state chip integrated onto the substrate in alignment with the first array of waveguides and comprising:
an array of quantum emitters, formed in the solid-state chip, to emit single photons; and
a second array of waveguides integrated with the solid-state chip, each waveguide in the second array of waveguides in optical communication with a corresponding quantum emitter in the array of quantum emitters and with a corresponding waveguide in the first array of waveguides to guide the single photons from the corresponding quantum emitter to the corresponding waveguide in the first array of waveguides.
