Optical Quantum Computing:

Two-Photon CNOT with Kerr Nonlinearity

The Controlled-NOT can be implemented using a Kerr medium:

|0= |H Polarization

|1= |V Qubits

R is a /2 polarization rotation,

followed by a polarization dependent

phase shift .

Optimization of Quantum Interferometric Metrological Sensors In the

Presence of Photon Loss

PHYSICAL REVIEW A, 80 (6): Art. No. 063803 DEC 2009

Tae-Woo Lee, Sean D. Huver, Hwang Lee, Lev Kaplan, Steven B. McCracken, Changjun Min, Dmitry B. Uskov, Christoph F. Wildfeuer, Georgios Veronis, Jonathan P. Dowling

We optimize two-mode, entangled, number states of light in the presence of loss in order to maximize the extraction of the available phase information in an interferometer. Our approach optimizes over the entire available input Hilbert space with no constraints, other than fixed total initial photon number.

Lossy State Comparison

PHYSICAL REVIEW A, 80 (6): Art. No. 063803 DEC 2009

Here we take the optimal state, outputted by the code, at each loss level and project it on to one of three know states, NOON,M&M, and “Spin” Coherent.

The conclusion from this plot is that the optimal states found by the computer code are N00N states for very low loss, M&M states for intermediate loss, and “spin” coherent states for high loss.

Super-Resolution at the Shot-Noise Limit with Coherent States

and Photon-Number-Resolving Detectors

J. Opt. Soc. Am. B/Vol. 27, No. 6/June 2010

Y. Gao, C.F. Wildfeuer, P.M. Anisimov, H. Lee, J.P. Dowling

We show that coherent light coupled with photon number resolving detectors — implementing parity detection — produces super-resolution much below the Rayleigh diffraction limit, with sensitivity at the shot-noise limit.

PM Anisimov, GM Raterman, A Chiruvelli, WN Plick, SD Huver, H Lee, JP Dowling

We show that super-resolution and sub-Heisenberg sensitivity is obtained with parity detection. In particular, in our setup, dependence of the signal on the phase evolves <n> times faster than in traditional schemes, and uncertainty in the phase estimation is better than 1/<n>.
