Silicon quantum photonics, capable to integrate large numbers of optical components with CMOS-compatible fabrication technology and reliable control of quantum states, is expected to play a critical role in future quantum communication. In this talk, we will introduce our recent results of silicon photonics for quantum communication, including high-dimensional silicon chip-to-chip quantum key distribution, chip-to-chip quantum teleportation, on-chip generation of high-dimensional quantum entanglement, and Hong-Ou-Mandel interference between two different III-V/silicon hybrid lasers towards future measurement device independent quantum communication.
