Abstract:

We began building a Hong-Ou-Mandel interferometer based entanglement verification system. This will allow us to detect changes in entanglement due to imperfections in interconnect media and components. Members of our quantum computing team were very helpful and this gave our team an opportunity to learn the experimental techniques used in quantum optics. We began to develop hyper-entanglement methods to allow for entanglement swapping and sacrificial pairs for destructive testing of entanglement. Hyper-entanglement is the ability to encode information in the multiple degrees of freedom of a qubit. These degrees of freedom can include polarization, spatial, OAM, momentum and spectral. Some development of a technique for photons on demand was done for the case of sources for entanglement characterization systems. The literature in the area of quantum memory and quantum processor to memory IO was searched and read in order to give an understanding of future possible areas of development in this area. Plans for further collaboration as part of a new interdirectorate LRIR were made.
