Abstract:

This is the final report for the AFRLRI in-house project Cluster State Quantum Computation. Under this project investigations were conducted which included i the development and characterization of a new multipli-entangled photon source that increased the usable number of photon pairs by a factor of six over conventional entangled photon sources ii design of multi-layer superconducting number-resolving photon detector, iii a theoretical and experimental investigation into the requirements of imperfect non-unit fidelity two-qubit linear optical photonic gates iv a theoretical investigation of entanglement and nonlocality addressing the issue of why nature does not take advantage of the algebraically allowed maximum correlations amongst collections of qubits, and v a theoretical investigation into the a 2.25X more efficient means to generate linear cluster states. This latter investigation led to a patent for probabilistic cluster state generator, also discussed in this report.
