“Virtual” Interferometers Could Minimize Size of Optical Processing Circuitry

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A novel technique dubbed “measurement-based linear optics” could enable miniaturization of the optical processing circuitry required for quantum computers by using virtual interferometers instead of large-scale physical ones. According to researcher Rafael Alexander, conventional interferometers that comprise hundreds or even thousands of optical elements are essential to implementing fully functional optical quantum computers. Measurement-based linear optics implements a huge multimode interferometer consisting of beamsplitters (green) and phase delays (blue). The...Read full article
