The importance of integrated quantum photonics in the telecom band consists of the possibility of interfacing with the optical network infrastructures developed for classical communications. In this framework, on-glass femtosecond laser-written integrated photonic circuits have great potential. They have been demonstrated capable of supporting, manipulate and measure polarization qubits. In addition, these circuits can be perfectly mode-matched at telecom wavelength to the in/out coupling fibres, which is a key requirement for a low-loss processing node in future quantum optical networks. Finally, for several applications, quantum photonic devices can be also dynamically reconfigurable.

In this talk, we report on the high performance of femtosecond laser-written photonic circuits for use in quantum experiments, in particular in the telecom band.
