Crafting high-dimensional tools for photonic quantum networks with tailored nonlinear optics
John Donohue, Institute for Quantum Computing
The time-frequency degree of freedom of light offers an intrinsically high-dimensional encoding space which is naturally compatible with waveguide devices and fiber infrastructure. However, coherent manipulation and measurement the information-carrying modes presents a challenge due to the sub-picosecond timescales inherent to downconversion-based photon sources. In this talk, I will discuss methods based on ultrafast pulse shaping and sum-frequency generation to address these temporal modes.

Quantum computer computes with the superposition of quantum states, and processes quantum parallelism. In this keynote talk, after briefly introducing the principle, and the current status of quantum hardware development, I will concentrate on the quantum algorithms, notably the Shor and Grover algorithm.
